"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."
