We used ready binaries, both netbook and IVI. If you want 3D graphics support for this board, the netbook image will work best.

Thanks a lot! This is very close to what I am looking for or I hope, actually, exactly the same.
Did you build MeeGo for this board according to instructions on http://wiki.meego.com<http://wiki.meego.com/>? Or any other instructions? Or did you use ready binaries?

Most Intel chipsets and boards support UART and I2C. For "development boards" you might look at the Advantech AIMB-212 http://buy.advantech.com/Products/modelprint.aspx?id=aimb-212n-s6a1e. We have run MeeGo (both IVI and Netbook versions) on this and continue to use it for some of our internal SW development. The ICH8 used on this board supports UART and I2C. The UART channels are routed to the COM ports. The I2C are routed to the mini-PCIe and PCI slots. On most Intel boards the I2C channels are used as SMBus.
It has been quite common on IA platforms for many years. As an example, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3T shown at the MeeGo conference has UART & I2C (SMbus) in its "Intel NM10 Express chipset" as can be seen in this technical specification. http://www.intel.com/Assets/PDF/datasheet/322896.pdf
If you choose a desktop or notebook or other platform with a system management controller you need to be aware that controller is probably using the i2C bus for management activities.
