That people are rather sick of the two main smart phone operating systems (iOS and Android) for whatever reason and are really excited about a (non-Microsoft) newcomer?

Though to quote Tim Minear "Where were you when we needed you?" (this is about Firefly fans on their 10th anniversary reunion, where about 10,000 fans showed up).

And much like the beloved Firefly, there were the hardcore people behind MeeGo and wanted it badly to succeed, then the rest... well we know the rest.

But with Jolla bouncing up, they are all over the media sites, which is fantastic!
