  • GenIVI goes forward with MeeGo

    FTA:

    The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, today announced the GENIVI Alliance has chosen MeeGo as the basis of its next reference release for In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI).

    MeeGo is an open source platform hosted by The Linux Foundation that brings together Intel Corporation and Nokia's previous projects and is designed for computing device types including smartphones, netbooks, tablets, mediaphones, connected TVs and IVI systems. Adoption by this major automotive alliance is a testament to the cross-device, cross-architecture advantages of the MeeGo platform. GENIVI is a nonprofit industry alliance with founding members BMW Group, Delphi, GM, Intel, Magneti-Marelli, PSA, Visteon and Wind River.

    Another few articles on the subject:

    It appears one of the primary motivations was the cross-architecture build infrastructure and tools that MeeGo has that Android and other OSs don't.

    Apparently there were over 70 articles published and over 500 google blog and news posts about the announcement. This is great news for developers. It means you'll have a very wide audience when you target meego.
