MeeGo 1.2 – A better, 30 Minute, look at the OS

A few days ago, MeeGo 1.2 Developer edition was given a demo and talk at the MeeGo conference in San Fransisco.  During that, very little time was actually given to showing the OS and I reached the conclusion that not much time was given to a functional demo because, frankly, not much was functional.

Well now we have a better look – a full half hour of looking at it thanks to the Hong Kong Meego user group.  The version is MeeGo 1.99 with the developer release 1.2 expected in late June or early July.

I think what they have so far looks nice in general, but it still also looks to me like they are a long way off from a release that consumers could use.

On another point, it also mentions that the Nokia device coming out uses Maemo 6 / Harmattan rather than MeeGo and is “supposed to be MeeGo compatible in some way”.

I am a software developer with most professional experience in the Windows .Net realm and I'm currently a WPF developer with Starkey Labs. However, I have wanted for some time to start the mobile developer journey properly and being an N900 owner, this was to be in the realm of QT. Job hunting, moving to Minnesota and changing jobs put my plans on hold 6-12 months but things are starting to settle now, just as I'm getting sorted to start some things, Microsoft and Nokia merge. This blog is about my novice mobile development experiences and hopefully will end up complete with links to download some apps on various platforms, but obviously by the name, Sybian, Maemo/Meego and Windows Mobile. In other stuff, I am English, I support Everton FC, I have visited Glastonbury music festival 5 times and recommend it to anyone. I am married and my wife and i have a dog called Friday.
