Whither Maemo?

So what happened to Maemo in this 'merger'?

I've not tried it yet but the screenshots and text are telling me that this is basically an updated moblin w/ chrome and social networking tagged on? What has been took/ developed from Maemo here?

I've not had funs to get one but I was quite excited after having a go with Maemo 5 on the N900 and I was looking forward to how that would progress but it seems Maemo 5 could be its last major version- assassinated by 'super moblin'.

I'm sure I'd heard recently that Meego was not to be ported to the N900 but now it seems it is. I was very keen on the N900 / Maemo 5+ but now I need to try this out and I'm not so sure anymore as moblin didn't impress me. Maemo 5 being based upon Debian was key to its cool.
