PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The GNOME foundation and the LiMo group announced a partnership to help push Linux forward in the consumer field. The only notice that anyone has seem to have taken is mockery. So why can someone announce some dedication to promoting open source software in the mobile space and generate no enthusiasm in the mobile space? Android.

Between Symbian and Maemo which merged with Limo renaming to Meego


Nokia never had anything to do with LiMo. MeeGo is merger of Nokia's Maemo and Intel's Moblin.

Limo.. Moblin.. I never did pay close enough attention to distinguish the two. Maemo blew away PalmOS from my attention span and it's been Debian or Mandriva for big boxes.

Here's hoping the lovely .debs for maemo get ported over to Meego though. Not having ruby/metasploit/kismet/scapy/ssh/GPE on Iphone or Android have been primary reasons for my disinterest in those platforms.

(of course, having finally got my hands on an N900, the N910 will be announced shortly.. that seems to be my patter so far based on N810 availability barely a quarter after my N800 purchase.)
