AMD said Monday that it has joined the MeeGo open source Linux project to become more involved with the mobile operating system.

According to AMD, it will offer engineering and technical knowhow to the effort. MeeGo is a next-generation mobile operating system.

AMD said that working on MeeGo will help it "create expanded market opportunities for our forthcoming accelerated processing units (APUs)." At its analyst meeting last week, AMD talked up its APUs and prospects for mobile computing.

MeeGo, designed for ultra-mobile notebooks, tablets, smartphones and embedded systems, is run by the Linux Foundation.

  • While Meego is interesting in terms of the UI

    I am disappointed that they chose rpm and won't accept recommendations to include deb packaging.

    That aside, I find the overall design most interesting and it has the essential 'polish' that will leverage it into use by the masses.

    Ubuntu Netbook Edition needs to do alot more work to get where MeeGo has already gone, thanks to the strident efforts put forth by Intel and Nokia knowledge trusts.
