As MeeGo infrastructure is based on Moblin, I can image that bash +
coreutils will be used and it is my preference too.
However I don't expect the target device to be 32GiB flash or similar :-)
The minimal HW requirement like 64MiB flash, 64 MiB RAM with 300MHz CPU
sounds reasonable to me. The question will be if we can fit MeeGo into that,
esp. GUI part.
