Fedora Core The Fedora 14 Beta was released today, but as a Network World article points out, it "will be the first Red Hat supported distribution to let users choose MeeGo as their desktop." This new release will also include the Sugar interface, intended for netbooks, and "will also be the first version to fully incorporate Red Hat's VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure), called SPICE, or Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments. SPICE will allow Fedora to host virtual desktops that can be accessed over a network."

Yeah, sorry for the mix between netbook and tablet (although their share the same problem : everything needs to have big UI elements, for netbooks to be readable, for tablets to be touchable).

But those apps rely on libraries and API; won't there be a widening gap between MeeGo-pure, and MeeGo-on-top-of-SUSE-or-Fedora? If, next year, PulseAudio is replaced by a new sound API (just an example, could be anything else - X.org replaced by Wayland, or something I can't think about, any of the hundreds of libs), Fedora will certainly switch to it, bleeding-edge as it is, OpenSuse will follow a little later, but how would the AppUp/Ovi apps deal with it?
