Intel has announced that four companies have committed to using the recently released MeeGo 1.2 code in upcoming versions of their Linux-based operating systems. MeeGo offers a user interface optimized for mobile devices including phones, tablets, and netbooks, as well as performance optimizations for Intel Atom processors.

Linpus, the company that developed the Linux distribution used on early Acer Aspire One netbooks will be using MeeGo 1.2 in its upcoming software. But it’s been a while since Acer released a product with Linpus Linux so it’s not clear how significant this announcement will be for mainstream consumers.

Another win for MeeGo? 4tittoo AG, the company that makes the Linux distribution used on the German WeTab tablet will upgrade to MeeGo 1.2.

The other two companies that have committed to using MeeGo 1.2 are Red Flag Software and China Standard Software Company.

It’s not quite as exciting a getting a commitment from Nokia or HP, but I guess it’s the best Intel could do right now.
