OpenSUSE Launches Smeegol Netbook Software Based On MeeGo Linux

The folks behind openSUSE Linux have launched a new version of the operating system that incorporates technology for the MeeGo project, dubbed Smeegol. Like MeeGo, Smeegol is designed for netbooks and other low power devices with small screens, though it’s tied to the openSUSE infrastructure, allowing users to install third party apps from the openSUSE repositories. Smeegol mainly uses the MeeGo user interface that relies on a series of tabs that help you navigate through programs without relying on traditional start menus or taskbars. It’s currently available for download for 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
