The only thing they can do is close up future versions of Hildon. I don't think they're dumb enough to do that.

I'd be pretty surprised if they didn't see this coming.

Especially bearing in mind that Hildon is but a thin layer of lacquer over GTK/Gnome, and that Nokia's software for the N700-N800 is more than 99% taken verbatim from the Free Software ecosystem.

Even more, I'd be pretty surprised if an Intel based Nokia N900 was not already in the works.
