PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Another mobile Linux consortium? Yup, another mobile Linux consortium. "ARM, Freescale Semiconductor, IBM, Samsung, ST-Ericsson and Texas Instruments, today announced the formation of Linaro, a not-for-profit open source software engineering company dedicated to enhancing open source innovation for the next wave of always-connected, always-on computing. Linaro's work will help developers and manufacturers provide consumers with more choice, more responsive devices and more diverse applications on Linux-based systems."

"Linaro will invest resources in open source projects that can then be used by Linux-based distributions such as Android, LiMo, MeeGo, Ubuntu and webOS."

Anyone know will they invest in stuff related to Maemo Linux?


Well MeeGo is the new Maemo somehow. And you got it wrong. They create software that can help any ARM distro. Those were just giving some examples.

Where they will invest is on software, tools and kernel optimizations for ARM, every distribution that compiles Linux for ARM will be able to use them.

I would say that Maemo is included, but by the time Linaro will have something, development on Maemo should be dead and replaced by MeeGo.
