Actually this seems to follow the same philosophy as FSO as you said: D-bus based approach, and nothing more than a framework. All higher-level stuff vendor-dependant.
I wonder why they don't support FSO instead. And I can't see how Intel fits in at this point - StrongARM seems to be "dead" and other manufacturers have much more attractive CPUs (price and performance wise).
Or maybe Intel has some new embedded CPU's that I am not aware of.
So no more Windows Mobile, nor Symbian ? Strikes me as odd too. Intel seems to be drifting away from Microsoft lately. But something tells me not to believe it.
