While Nokia has effectively abandoned the MeeGo Linux operating system, Intel is still supporting MeeGo along with AMD and other vendors, including SplashTop. SplashTop has today announced the release of their MeeGo-based operating system.

While SplashTop OS was more interesting when it was embedded on motherboard chips, they are still alive and kicking, in fact I had spent quite a bit of time with the SplashTop team last month at CES. They have hooked up with Microsoft's Bing and Google's Chromium and they have been working on a MeeGo-based operating system for their OEM partners.

One of the reasons for switching to its MeeGo base is to take advantage of Intel's MeeGo AppUp application store and the ongoing work that Intel is doing to optimize MeeGo and its Linux stack for various mobile / smart-phone devices.

"If you're an OEM, you should choose a software partner the way you'd choose a spouse," said Mark Lee, CEO of Splashtop. "It should be someone you trust, someone who understands how you operate, and someone who can help you bring a beautiful product into the world."
