Valtteri Halla is Director, Technology and Innovation at Intel. I met up with him at the MeeGo Summit in Finland and I wanted to hear first hand of his passion for MeeGo and what makes him tick. Here is what he had to say:
MeeGo is an Open Source accumulating continuum which has opportunities for companies to progress and its great to be part of the momentum to push this project forward. I look forward to MeeGo computing in its various form factors with upstream components.
One of the messages that I like is a message said by Carsten Munk:
"MeeGo is a business mans distribution"
MeeGo helps startups by lowering the entry boundaries and encouraging innovation with Solid Business Values - Creating technology as a solution to a problem with no licensing issues and equal access to technology in a dynamic environment. Intel is a company that can make it happen with MeeGo with strategic investment and product development. Big companies can make it happen and small companies can benefit from this vision.
We hope to document the road ahead with the aid of Valtteri in the coming months and years ahead and thank him for his time.
