Maybe this comment comes late, but, after reading some reviews to Meego, it seems to be an improved version of Moblin with nothing coming from the Maemo/Qt side... Is that correct?

Let's see if Nokia will continue supporting Maemo after Maemo/Moblin marriage ;)

This is incorrect. The stuff you have seen is current iteration of "Netbook UX" (user experience) for MeeGo, which is indeed basically new Moblin.

The Handset UX will be released at a later date.

But don't you think that having just a single code base (let's call it: Core UX) implemented on Qt would have done their lives easier? and the specific things for netbooks and phones coming on top of that? Having two or more "personalities" on top of the core OS will be a headache.

Ok, I don't have any technical knowledge on Meego/Maemo/Moblin so I'm just speculating here.
