I have had a little contact with Intel's Meego team manager but I do not have 
any technical details.  I am under the impression that Intel sort of backed 
away from meego when Nokia went with WinPhone.  I do know that Intel stopped 
hiring programmers to work on meego about that time.

I would expect that the printing stack at the UI level is the more or less 
stock Qt components but the lower levels of that stack I don't know.  I am 
under the impression that the Intel/Nokia deal was that Intel would do all of 
the apps and UI stuff and Nokia would do all of the systems stuff.
