I'm running MeeGo on my HP Mini 210 netbook and LOVING it! It makes me wish I'd stuck it out with T-Mobile and the N900, nerfed data speeds be damned.


Don't lose too much sleep; even the latest builds I tried haven't sorted out out the dialer issues on the N900, leaving it unreliable as an actual phone... even if it is pretty sweet. *sigh*

Well I rarely use my phone as an actual telephone; most of my communication is by text, chat, or email. So, that issue wouldn't have been a problem for me as much as T-Mobile somehow capping the N900 to under 100Kbps on their network shortly after I bought it last year. I could put the SIM in my old Android and get the usual ~3Mbps with no ping issues. And, on WiFi the N900 worked at whatever speed the router and modem supported; I tested it all the way up to 10Mbps at home, which approached the limits of my Comcast connection.

Now that I'm on Sprint the fastest I've seen is 800Kbps on an HTC Arrive, but that's plenty for my needs, as I don't tether anymore.

I do miss that slick Maemo interface though...
