"The Linux-based MeeGo mobile operating system faces an uncertain future amid rumors that Intel plans to back away from the platform. The troubled open source software project has failed to gain broad industry support and appears to be slowing down in the face of weak demand and declining engagement from its backers.

"Intel denied the rumors today, saying that it is still 'fully committed' to MeeGo and intends to continue developing the platform while searching for new partners. Intel's 'commitment' doesn't mean much in practice, however, because the company's development efforts to date have done little to advance the project. Unless Intel can attract a partner that is better equipped to produce consumer-facing software, MeeGo doesn't have much of a future as a discrete mobile platform."
