MeeGo is the new Linux-based operating system and user environment that came out of the merger of the Maemo and Moblin Linux projects. Today the MeeGo team released the first pre-release builds of the operating system, with versions available for:

  • Intel Atom-based netbooks
  • Intel Atom Moorestown handsets
  • The ARM-based Nokia N900 internet device

The first full release of MeeGo is scheduled for May. But if you want a first look at the new operating system, you can go ahead and check it out today… or maybe tomorrow. I started downloading about 20 minutes ago and it looks like it could take another 14 hours before I have the 392MB USB image. It looks like the MeeGo servers might getting hammered, and I don’t see any mirrors or torrent files yet.

  1. Yeah… the site has crashed on me several times now. I think they should consider hosting this file externally. I will check on a torrent when I get off work I guess
