6 days after I blog that the MeeGo project should start with a release of MeeGo as a first step… well they do exactly that. Now before everyone goes off and tries to flash their nifty Nokia N900, please don’t. This first release is just the underlying stack, without any GUI elements. As in if you flash your device to this first release… you’ll get a console with a blinking cursor. Now I don’t know about you… but I don’t know how to make a phone using the console. Still great work MeeGo folks. I look forward to seeing the upcoming release with the MeeGo User Experience, to see how the system will look once it becomes something an advanced end-user can use.
