ArsTechnica just posted a very nice hands-on with MeeGo 1.0 for netbooks: Hands-on: MeeGo for netbooks picks up where Moblin left off

Also, the new Phoronix benchmark for netbook distros includes Meego 1.0, compared to recent releases of more established brands (UNR, Fedora etc.). Very impressive showing for an 1.0 release ! (especially for boot time)

Download from Meego site is slow as snail on wheelchair and the only torrent I found is even slower.

I especially like the part where meego doesn't provide any drivers or codecs. Good luck generating interest in your OS when it doesn't run properly on anything.

I have tested out 2 prior versions of Moblin before, and this "Meego" looks exactly like Moblin (with the exception of Chromium, which is new). Is Maemo really being used, or being swallowed?

Looks are not everything.. Meego uses Maemo's telephony stack as well as other internal components.

There is more to an OS then just the gui.

Will Intel have it's own UX for phones or is Nokia's Harmattan/MeeGo the only smartphone UX for MeeGo?
