General Development Several presentations about mobile Linux technologies, such as Mer, Nemo, and Jolla. Mer is openly developed and meritocratically governed mobile Linux core distribution, which was forked from the various components of the Meego project when it was abandoned by Nokia and Intel. Nemo is a community project which continues the effort of the Meego handset branch. And Jolla is a new startup company created by former Nokia Linux engineers, who participated in Maemo and Harmattan projects, and decided to continue on their own, when Nokia lost their interest in Meego. Their goal is to release end user products (initially handsets) using an operating system based on the Mer core and some components of Nemo, which will be providing their own user interface.

Probably not, depending on the build architecture. If they use ARMv7l (softp) - it won't work on Harmattan which uses ARMv7hl (hardfp) without being recompiled. Otherwise it'll depend on libraries compatibility, and Mer is in general using newer libraries than Harmattan.
