It was at MWC 2010 when Intel and Nokia announced their Maemo and Moblin platforms would be merged into one, called MeeGo
. It seems both companies have decided it's about time their work saw the light of day and released the first part of the code that can be installed on the Nokia N900 and any device based on Intel's Atom architecture. This distribution is, however, aimed at software developers and its major task is to get them acquainted with the file system of the new platform. Intel and Nokia intend to release more parts of the code in the next several days, with the first official and fully functional edition of MeeGo scheduled for May 2010.
It's important for you to know that, unless you have proper knowledge of Linux, you better stay away from this release and don't put the software health of your N900 at unnecessary risk, because installing the code involves deleting all personal data on the device.
