這個過年期間比較大的資訊新聞,大概算是Intel和Nokia在2010 MWC大會中,宣布將各自的行動裝置系統MoblinMaemo合併為一個計畫稱之為MeeGo


Linux.com當中,有說明了MeeGo合併之後的系統架構圖,Maemo 5使用的GTK在合併後,由於Moblin使用的Clutter也會使用到,所以應該還是會部分保留。


而二家公司合作之外,Linux基金會似乎也會參與計畫,至少目前MeeGo網站是架在Linux基金會底下,算是淡化了一些MeeGo為二公司所有的色彩。而這項合併計畫當中各自的算盤或許是如下:


對Intel來說,由於他們即將推Moorestown的CPU希望能運用在小型行動裝置,雖然目前有LG或是像Aava Mobile已經有推出樣品,但是如果透過這樣的合作,能夠讓Nokia採用Moorestown推出產品的話,對於自家產品也會有不錯的背書效果,而且透過與Nokia這間行動電話領域經驗較多的公司合作,或許對於自家CPU在日後的改進上可以獲得許多寶貴的建議。


對Nokia而言,雖然Maemo是個強大的平台,但是專為Maemo寫的軟體,目前跟後起的Android比起來反而是少得可憐,而Intel的Moblin在軟體倉庫上的設計,本身就已經可以使用許多既有的Linux軟體,或許合併後在軟體應用的數量上可以擴增許多,而且Moblin的UI設計也有其獨特之處,對於Maemo目前在UI上需要作的改進也會有所幫助。


對於Linux基金會而言,雖然Android目前是相當受歡迎並以Linux作為底層的系統,但是其架構上允許專有驅動程式的中間層設計,讓Linux核心開發人員不得不將Android相關程式碼從核心中移除,個人猜想會出現這樣的舉動,或許有可能是Linux基金會人員在協助MeeGo專案時,發現Android程式碼這樣的情況,會導致Linux核心在MeeGo當中使用會遭遇到許多無法使用或是必須接受私有驅動的問題,這對於一個希望建立完整的行動Linux平台的單位來說,是不太會去允許的事情(以上僅為個人臆測)。


而且相較於Android限制性的開發環境,MeeGo本身具有較為完整的Linux系統架構,對於Linux基金會底下慣於開發Linux程式的開發人員來說,也可以在限制較少的情況下得以快速協助上手。


而對於iPhone OS從小型裝置踏入到平板裝置iPad的情況來說,目前想要推出類似商品的廠商,大多會採用Android系統,或是以Windows架構的平板電腦作為考慮,但是由於Android系統本身就是僅為小型裝置設計的,在運用在較高解析度的狀態下,目前也尚未有類似針對iPad的方式(如軟體可全螢幕執行)做好最佳化,而如果要採用Chrome OS,卻又尚未能夠享有到Android AppMarket所提供的資源優勢,雖然Google方面有提出二項系統終究將會整合的消息,但是目前也尚未看到有相關的動作或推出,而Windows平板電腦當初就已經未能打開市場,再推出會獲得關注的機會則可說是更小。


所以對於MeeGo平台的有利機會點,應該就在於是否能夠在其他共同用於小型及中型行動終端產品的系統推出前,做好整合完成的動作,並且也要看二家公司在各自硬體領域上的專業品牌形象,是否能夠吸引到其他廠商加入採用MeeGo平台,獲得如同目前Android所得到的人氣關注以及人力資源來決定了。

MeeGo to determine their progress in the integration of the key to success

The relatively large during the Chinese New Year information and the press, probably be regarded as Intel and Nokia at the 2010 MWC Assembly, announced that their mobile device system Moblin andMaemo merged into a single program called Meego.


Linux.com them, there is illustrated MeeGo After the merger, the system architecture diagram, Maemo 5 using GTK after the merger, due to the use of the Clutter also use Moblin, so I should still be part of the reservation.


The two outside companies, Linux Foundation, appears to have also participated in program, at least for now MeeGo site is under the frame at the Linux Foundation, can be considered to play down some of MeeGo all of the colors for the two companies. The plans include the merger of their respective calculation may be as follows:


For Intel, because they were about to push the Moorestown's CPU to try to use in small mobile devices, although there are LG or the likeAava Mobile has been available for sampling, but if, through such cooperation, will allow Nokia adopt Moorestown product launches, then for its own products there will be a good endorsement effects, and through this with the Nokia mobile phone companies more experience in the field, perhaps for their own CPU in the future to improve the access to many valuable suggestions.


For Nokia, although Maemo is a powerful platform, but the software written specifically for the Maemo is currently with the late-coming but is only a pittance compared with Android, while Intel's Moblin warehouse on the design of the software itself would be able to use the many of the existing Linux software, perhaps after the merger the number of software applications can be amplified by many, and Moblin-UI design has its unique features, the current UI for the Maemo on the need to make improvements would also help.


For the Linux Foundation, although Android is now very popular, and with Linux as the underlying system, but its structure to allow proprietary drivers in the middle layer designed to allow the core Linux developers have to Android-related code from the core Remove, individuals assume that such a move occurs, it might be possible that Linux Foundation, in assisting MeeGo project, we found that Android code such a situation would lead to the use of Linux among the core MeeGo will encounter a number can not be used or must accept the proprietary driver issue, which for a wish to establish integrity of the Linux platform units, are less likely to allow things (more than just personal speculation).


And restrictive compared to Android development environment, MeeGo itself has a fairly complete Linux system architecture for the Linux Foundation, under the program are used to develop Linux developers who may also be the case in the less restrictive to help get started quickly .


As for the iPhone OS from small devices to flat-panel device iPad into the case, the current vendors want to launch a similar product, most of them will adopt Android system, or Tablet PC to Windows architecture was considered, but since Android system itself is only for small devices designed to use at a higher resolution in the state, is also not yet a similar manner for the iPad (such as the software can be full-screen implementation) good optimization, but if you want to use Chrome OS, but Android AppMarket not yet been able to enjoy the resources available, although Google has made two systems will eventually integrate the news, but it is also not yet seen the relevant action or launch the Windows Tablet PC original had already failed to open the market, and then attention will be given the opportunity to introduce can be said to be smaller.


So MeeGo platform, enabling the opportunity to point, there should be is whether it can be used in the other co-operation of small and medium-end products before the launch of the system, do a good job integrating the completion of the action, and also look at two companies in their respective areas of hardware the professional brand image, is able to attract other companies to join with MeeGo platform, was received as the current popularity of Android concerns, and human resources to a decision.
