PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Sorry for the delay in writing a story about this, but here we finally are: Nokia's MeeGo (or Maemo or whatever it's called this hour) is getting its successor. Yes, MeeGo, the short-lived but beloved platform running on the unicorn phone, the Nokia N9, will continue onwards in a slightly different form. Its new home? Jolla - a company formed by former Nokia chief operating officer Marc Dillon, who was the principal engineer for MeeGo/Maemo at Nokia since 2006.

Then there's the issue of hardware. Open development and a FOSS software stack are one thing, but convincing chipset OEMs to release specs and documentation is just as hard today as it was during the MS dominated desktop era. In fact, it's probably harder than ever thanks to humanity-phobics like Nvidia and Broadcom


Well I think you get the loon rhetoric award for the month.

Nvidia won't bend over for Linus' "open source or gtfo" unstable abi so it makes them have a medical fear of humanity.

Your prize is in the mail. It's a shitty desktop.
