Hi guys,

Just wondering: MeeGo looks a very promising platform with Intel and Nokia (=ARM) on-board.

Netbooks, smartphones, tablets in the making: shouldn't we participate ?

If it takes off, sure. But my feeling is they still have a long way to go to grab market share. At the moment Android is eating their cake.

And having said that, as usual, we aren't tied to any particular client system so if there's interest in exploring MeeGo, would be happy to help with questions and host the work here.

It's still early days for MeeGo, indeed. But in October, the whole Intel-ecosystem (Asus, Acer, MSI, etc.) will launch MeeGo 1.1-based systems. Add to this the Symbian, Meego and Windows Mobile phones we could target with Qt and it becomes a huge market !

Intel leads the Netbook UX (user experience), Nokia the Smartphone UX, OpenRemote could lead the Automation UX !

That's an interesting bit of info about the ecosystem. Please keep us updated on how things evolve in Meego-land.

I would like to add this: MeeGo is a distro backed by the biggest hardware players in the world: Intel and Nokia of course, but also BMW, ST-Ericsson, Cisco and Telefonica to name a few.

Joining the project now would put OpenRemote on the world map, you could influence the software stack with your expertise, and maybe even get some funding and help from these partners.
