Oracle OpenOffice/Libreoffice discussion


Antonio and MeeGo
Running off a USB stick on a low end Atom
Ran built in demo
Distro seems to be set to be an integrated social media OS.
Has decent web multimedia, but not great.  This may have been from CPU
limitations on the Atom board
Interface is geared toward new users or for people that don't need
more than the built in functionality?
Seems to be geared toward web browsing and simple apps.  Maybe
IPod/IPad market area?

Meebo has a netbook edition as well as other editions such as
navigation devices.
Tablet version has different/simpler UI and multi-finger touch

Reasonably fully featured from the web users standpoint.
Didn't find a good way to shutdown from the menu system

Origins of the OS is:
Moblin from Intel?
Meego from Nokia?
SuSE is involved somewhere as well.

The version is at 1.1 alpha of some sort
They want a 6month dev cycle.


Baseline hardware that can run Meego
BeagleBoard-xM
beagleboard.org/hardware



Played with package managers. software installation. etc.
Seems decent.


I'm out of battery.  End of email.

cheers,
Michael
