PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I recently got to spend some time with MeeGo, an Intel-sponsored Linux distribution designed for netbooks and other mobile devices (such as Nokia's extra-geeky N900 smartphone). I tested MeeGo on a Lenovo IdeaPad S10 netbook and I was extremely impressed.

RE[4]: what a bad UI

That's what I thought.

Anyways - we seem to agree that this UI isn't good only for some appliances and only for some specific demands. For a regular user it would be probobly just fine, but for someone [like me] who likes to use term on such devices ... well, this UI seems to be a bad choice.
It's good that we can always replace this OS with another one. I - for example - used to run OpenBSD and Arch Linux on top of Lenovo IdeaPad S10 and it was much better than any MeeGo, at least for me ;)

"Those autohide when you are using an application."

Oh, I didn't know that. Sounds cool.

It depends. When autohide tries to use smooth animations to look more modern, their non-modifiable slowness can just makes you want to smash the computer on the wall (or, rather, to desactivate this behavior right away).
