If Meego can run on netbooks, it can run on desktop with only little modifications.


Of course it will run - but desktop market is not what's interesting for Nokia or Intel in MeeGo development.

It's more of a desktop OS than Chrome OS but less than, say, Ubuntu.

Wouldn't a desktop linux distro put together by a professional team of devs which includes designers that the boss listens to have the potential of dominating the linux world ?


It would, but Linux people tend to expect Gnome/KDE like experience (optimized for mouse, full keyboard + large non-touch screen).

Sorry for the edit. Thought you did not see it yet.
Your point makes sense. Though linux users have proven to accept (unneeded and painful) breakthrough changes like the introduction of PulseAudio in the long run. Wait and see...

Pulseaudio is essential for those who want a future where linux -- as windows and osx -- have a sound system which just work without hassle.

On my hardware it's impossible to adjust the volume only using alsa. (HDMI sound).

I use, skype, I have usb headset, I listen to music and sometimes visit web sites that have flash videos with sound. Using all this in an accpetable way involve having a system like pulseaudio.

PS. I'm not implying pulseaudio is flawless, just pointing out that it's the right way forward. At least for me, it's a great leap forward.
