You've already watched
pre-release versions of MeeGo
fly around on a number of netbooks, but if you're still wondering if it's worth your while to install v1.0
on your own machine, you owe it to yourself to have a look at the video posted after the break. The fine folks over at Liliputing
have installed the fresh-out-of-the-lab operating system onto their MSI netbook in order to showcase some of the features, and frankly, we're duly impressed by what we're seeing. It's clearly light on its feet, with an Expose-like shifting of screens happening at speeds which we previously only dreamed of seeing on an Atom-based rig. We can't say the rest of the world is really ready to ditch Windows 7 for something as niche as this, but judging by this vid, you should probably give it a whirl. What's to lose, right?
P.S. - Phoronix
was able to run the new OS through the benchmark gauntlet
, and it certainly showed up Ubuntu.
