"Take one part Intel's Moblin, mix with Nokia's Maemo, bake for three months in the Linux Foundation oven, and you get MeeGo. Linux Foundation executive director, Jim Zemlin has called this new embedded Linux, the open-source uber-platform for the next generation of computing devices: tablets, pocketable computers, netbooks, automotive IVI (In-Vehicle Infotainment) and more."

"Zemlin went on to say that "With MeeGo, you have the world's largest chip manufacturer and the world's largest mobile handset manufacturer joining forces to create an incredible opportunity for developers who want to reach millions of users with innovative technology." That sounds great, except the world's largest search engine company, a little business I like to call Google, already has an embedded Linux named Android that's already out in the market and doing quite well."
