"Intel has revealed that it is developing a variant of the
Linux-based MeeGo operating system that will run on conventional
desktop and laptop computers. This move could substantially broaden
MeeGo's scope, transforming it from a mobile platform into a
general purpose Linux distro.
"The open source MeeGo project emerged earlier this year when
Intel and Nokia combined their respective mobile Linux platforms.
MeeGo, which is endorsed by the Linux Foundation, aims to reduce
fragmentation in the mobile ecosystem by providing a vendor-neutral
Linux platform that supports a number of different hardware
architectures and form factors. It is designed for mobile and
embedded computing, with heavy optimization for ARM processors and
Intel's Atom chips."
