"After three months of development, the 1.0 release of the MeeGo open source Linux mobile operating system is now available. MeeGo is joint effort led by Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) and Nokia (NYSE: NOK) that was first announced in February.

"MeeGo combines elements of Intel's Moblin Linux with Nokia's Maemo Linux effort into a new mobile operating system that can be used for netbooks, handheld devices and other mobile applications. The initial MeeGo 1.0 release is only available for netbooks, with a MeeGoo handset version planned for a June release.

""This release provides developers with a stable core foundation for application development and a rich user experience for Netbooks," Imad Sousou, director of Intel's open source technology center, wrote in a mailing list posting.

"At the core of the MeeGo release is a Linux 2.6.33 kernel. Ironically, the 2.6.33 kernel was the first kernel to drop support for the rival Google Android operating system and its associated drivers."
