MeeGo is a Linux-based open source mobile operating system project[1] that will combine the Qt-based user interface framework from Nokia's Maemo project with the core software platform from Intel's Moblin project.[2] It was announced at Mobile World Congress in February 2010, with mixed reactions from the communities of both parties.[3]

Compatibility will be provided for both the Intel (AppUp) and Nokia (Ovi) digital software distribution systems, although the one that each individual device uses will be based on the hardware manufacture.[4]

It will provide support for both ARM and x86 processors.[2]

It is hosted by the Linux Foundation on a domain name originally registered in 1999.[5]

Harmattan, originally slated to become Maemo 6, the sixth incarnation of Nokia's Maemo mobile operating system, is now considered to be a MeeGo instance (though not a MeeGo Product), and Nokia is giving up the Maemo branding for Harmattan and beyond (Fremantle and previous will still be referred to as Maemo instances).[6]
