    Intel dropping support of Meego "Temporarily"

    http://techcrunch.com/2011/09/02/rep...t-temporarily/

    So, what does this mean to Meego? Do you think it will go the way of WebOS, or will it continue on with pure open source support, and no corporate backing?

    I send an e-mail over to my friend at Nokia. I wonder if he has any comment on it.

    for me this is just confirmation that the LinuxICE project should be continued. It's more independent than this stuff backed by Intel and Nokia.

    LinuxICE had massive potential but the dev was never really opened up as much as it should have been in my opinion. Even if the current core was given out with examples of how to build plugins in various scripting languages I think the project would see a surprising hike in the rate of adoption and devs. It's a shame the wiki has been spammed to the high hills and the forum is now closed in favor of this one. There was some good information on there - and it should still be available.

    Does anyone else feel this way?

    I think that's a great idea iclebyte! So you get started on cleaning up the wiki, do a couple of plugin examples in some different coding languages, be sure to document it thoroughly so everyone else can understand it all. Probably should clean up the old forum a bit as it got spammed up as well.

    Thanks for volunteering!

    Ok, so now all sarcasm aside. Everyone that wanted to "help" with LinuxICE were just like you and me. We all talked a great talk about it but coming down to actually helping, nobody would. I tried to keep the forum clean, I made an attempt to help with the wiki. I loaned out a crappy server to do compiling work on, etc.

    Why don't you step up and do something?

    As far as the dev being "open"... I'm pretty sure it couldn't get any more open. Not sure what you mean there. If you mean by helping you or someone else write code, do you really think most devs have time for that?

    This is why the project died. There was never enough help.

    I agree with Tidder. The problem is too many people complaining of not enough support, and... well.... not enough support. The issue had nothing at all to do with the dev of linuxice, and everything to do with the members of the community which followed linuxice. There were way too many people complaining about issues, and lurking on the forums, and not nearly enough stepping up to help produce patches, and maintain the website and documentation.

    It failed due to the lack of support, not for a lack of anything else. The dev did an awesome job with it, but like most of us who try to produce open source products for this community, there is not enough people willing to help to make it worth it.
