After a bit of reading, It's Xfce desktop environment that can be flashed into N900, It's not the Handheld MeeGo OS afaik.

Are you sure that's for the n900? Looks like a notebook release. In any case I dont think it has the mobile UX

Edit: ^^ ah ok

Let's remember that this the MeeGo 1.0 OS core that is code complete booting up to command line. The MeeGo Handset UX will be released in MeeGo 1.1 in Q4 2010. Development for MeeGo 1.1 Handset UX will start next month with unstable releases.

Give us some time and we'll get you good instructions. We have provided a open image and will soon provide a image with closed source blobs (battery charging, 3d acceleration, bluetooth firmware and wifi firmware).

Keep in mind that this does not come with a UX (again) Handset UX is coming out sometime after 1.0 release, so it's just your old fashioned X-terminal. But a 3d accelerated X!

its only the core system, not the userinterface, for that we must wait for june.

the first version is only for atom based netbooks, with working userinterface.
