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.

And one which repeatedly brought the Amiga to mind, with colossal management issues ultimately leading to the loss of a platform right when it should have been flourishing. Still, like you say, there is a ray of hope from the Jolla team, and with a bit of luck they'll have something to market worthy of replacing my N9 when that time inevitably arrives.
