Smeegol is the combination of MeeGo's innovative User eXperience aimed
primarily at netbooks (but just as suitable on larger displays), and
openSUSE's solid distro & ecosystem.

Originally Smeegol stood for SUSE MeeGo Linux, but it is just openSUSE's
interpretation of MeeGo now.

http://meego.com/community/blogs/imad/2010/meego-v1.0-core-software-platform-netbook-user-experience-project-release

is nearly as cryptic!

Why isn't it possible to write clearly?

Is Meego/Smeagol a Linux operating system or a windows manager or even
a skin? Impossible to know!

Meego is a "netbook user experience" what frenchmen name "Volapück"
(http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volap%C3%BCk), that is a language that
nobody can understand.

It's already difficult to know for sure what is a "netbook". I beg
this is the short name of a small computer mostly done with autonomy
and internet connectivity in mind,

But what mean "user experience" as a noun? So openSUSE is not an user
experience?

So what is smeegol?
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Smeegol (beurk!
reproduce by explosion?)

I finally found an already seen paper about 11.3 with:

"For another take on the netbook experience, one can turn to a new
pre-release version of the MeeGo on OpenSUSE ("Smeegol") distribution
developed by the OpenSUSE Goblin team. Based on the open source MeeGo
v1.0 for Netbooks, which itself is forged from parts of Moblin, Maemo,
and Qt, the "Smeegol" distro offers the Banshee music player, as well
as Digg, Facebook, MySpace, and Flickr integration."

So, may be "SmeeGol is an openSUSE Linux distribution derivative, also
based on MeeGo, aimed to the use of the small laptop computers often
called netbooks".

Is that good? if so you can use it :-))
