Those around who might remember Mer - Maemo Reconstructed - a project/proposal to open up Maemo with open software and an open way of working.. well, it's back, this time as MeeGo Reconstructed, aiming at continuing MeeGo and ultimately becoming MeeGo 2.0.

It aims at keeping & continuing the best parts of MeeGo while doing away with the worst parts and adding some new bits on top, like making it much easier to port to new devices.

Those interested in participating or asking questions, feel free to pop into #mer on freenode!

I look forward to seeing my N900 running the MeeGo UX on top of Mer in the near future.

I read your blog and it was refreshing to read, comes across with real intent without being pushy so a big thumbs up to you.

But i got a question.........

Yes, Mer is his 'baby' originally. I'd say it'll be quite a bigger playground with so many interested folks now, but of course he'll be there.

Then will you please reiterate to him that for meego to be recognised and people to have faith, it MUST be capable of more than it is right now.

Many people have lost faith because of the limitations it has and after such a long time.

I want to see meego succeed where Maemo failed and i am serious about this.

I said to you before about the N9 and i meant what i said in that everyone who buys the N9 will have expectations of meego from there on and if the adaption does not match the meego installs of the N9 then it will fail miserably.

This is not a dig in any way it is a request for a better meego experiance for the N900 and i wish you and stskeeps all the best with this and just hope it pulls through this time.

Will this be limited to the N900? Limited to Nokia products?

Limited to whatever people want to put it on. MeeGo Handset CE is already rebasing on top of it, so that's N900/N950/N9, I guess someone will have a generic x86 adaptation pretty soon if there isn't one already (it should be doable by picking up the pieces from MeeGo itself)...

It's probably also possible to get it booting on a larger range of devices, since Mer (unlike MeeGo) is building for a much wider range of architectures, not just armv7

Thumbs up for this project.

Hope to see you guys take full advantage of MeeGo CE's work. Love the fact that Qt is onboard.
