If they isn't your goal with this whole use Linux thing, what is exactly? Is it just that you like the way Meego looks?

They could cut their RND expenses and just take the platform as is - refocusing their corporate spending on differentiation, management bonuses or whatever may strike their fancy.

Going with QNX, they are paying for everything by themselves.
