Now here’s a very positive new sign for MeeGo’s future. AMD, Intel’s oldest and boldest nemesis, has added its name to the list of companies actively supporting the development of the platform — which got its start as a joint project between Intel and Nokia — and has pledged the contribution of its “engineering expertise” to the further advancement of the open source OS. In simpler terms, AMD must be aware of the great potential of MeeGo and is seeking not to be left behind, as illustrated by Ben Bar-Haim, the company’s software development VP, who expressed AMD’s hope that “this operating system will help drive our embedded plans and create expanded market opportunities for our forthcoming Accelerated Processing Units.” Good to know, guys, good to know. Jump past the break for the full press release.
Chissà se con l’aiuto di AMD la piattaforma MeeGo diventerà un serio concorrente per Android e OSX.
