PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's a long read - but totally and utterly worth it. After interviewing ten former and current Nokia employees, and combining their insider information with publicly available information, Sampsa Kurri has written a long and detailed article about the history of Maemo and MeeGo within Nokia, and everything that went wrong - which is a lot. It's sad tale, one that reads almost like a manual on how to not run a large company. Still, between the bad decisions and frustrations, there's a red thread of hope that leads to Jolla.

No, before the NeXT was on board, Apple did not care about open source and open standards.

Network Protocols -> AppleTalk

3D Graphics -> Quickdraw 3D

POSIX -> non-existant

GUI -> Patchwork from former Pascal and C APIs

Video -> Quicktime

many other examples are possible
