This is a request to the Technical Steering Group to approve the creation of a Desktop Profile working group.
There are still over 160M desktops shipping per year. This presents solid market opportunity for MeeGo.
To discuss and plan the MeeGo developer offering and support, subscribe to the MeeGo SDK mailing list: http://lists.meego.com/listinfo/meego-sdk. You can also subscribe from your account page on meego.com.
The Desktop Profile working group shall provide a bi-directional community channel to help the creation of MeeGo profile for desktops / nettops.
The main areas within the scope of the working group are (in no particular order):
The application development tool framework is based on QT. QT apps developed will work across Desktop Profile, Notebook Profile, and Slate Profile.
MeeGo members interested in taking an active role in this working group. Please detail your interests and what you can contribute to the group:
DeviceVM will contribute several engineers to support the Desktop Profile working group, and will support OEM integration of MeeGo-Desktop. DeviceVM's current desktop customers include Acer, Asus, Dell, Foxconn, Gigabyte, MSI, and others. DeviceVM will be able to enable tens of millions of MeeGo-Desktop in the coming year.
