PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia may have gone with Windows Phone 7 for its future smartphone operating system, but until then, we now have the Nokia N9 to look at. Yes, a beautiful, top-of-the-line Nokia smartphone which runs MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan - but isn't this thing kind of a dead end? Also announced: the even prettier Nokia N950 Meego 1.2 developer device - only available to a limited number of developers. Sure to become a collectors' item.

Well, that's just an opinion.

To me having the same API and library compatibility is having the same OS. The fact that it has *more/different* things is a bonus...

CentOS and Scientific Linux are RedHat distros... aren't they?

In the end:
1- for you is not meego -> great
2- for me it is meego -> also great

Everyone happy then ;)

Your CentOS/RHEL comparison only apply here if someone can create a .deb based distro which is binary compatible with RHEL. Doesn't exist.
