I just tried to install Meego 1.0 on a netbook, a DELL Inspiron 1210, and it has been a total disaster. I had prepared a bootable USB stick from Ubuntu using UNetbootin.
I just got the 1st screen of Meego offering me to Install / run Meego / start the machine from the hard-disk and then … nothing. I just couldn’t install it or run it.
This is the kind of basics any Linux distribution is now mastering, but apparently not the guys from Intel and Nokia… really disappointing.
