AMD MeeGo! Nokia's hope for the future is developing at a quick pace, and considering the rather lukewarm reception of Nokia's Symbian^3 devices, that quick pace is more than justified. MeeGo got a big boost today with AMD announcing support for the platform. The company puts its money where its mouth is, too.

I am so glad to finally see some very serious efforts to push Linux on mobile platforms.


Android has been on the market for 2 years and in development for more than 5, that doesn't count as pushing Linux on a mobile platforms?

"Droid Fonts" seems to be something that can be used outside Android as well.

When saying "linux", people generally mean GNU/linux with Xorg and all the stuff.

Indeed, as asserted by others, I generally think of Android as a "sort of" linux. While Linux is a kernel. I think of Linux as also including a large ecosystem of tools and infrastructure that make me a happy camper. Personally, I am eagerly awaiting the Nokia N9 with Meego sometime early next year. I am from the SuSE camp and having Zypper for package management is right down my alley.
