PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's a long read - but totally and utterly worth it. After interviewing ten former and current Nokia employees, and combining their insider information with publicly available information, Sampsa Kurri has written a long and detailed article about the history of Maemo and MeeGo within Nokia, and everything that went wrong - which is a lot. It's sad tale, one that reads almost like a manual on how to not run a large company. Still, between the bad decisions and frustrations, there's a red thread of hope that leads to Jolla.

Too true. Its tough to give a project to a fellow coworker and have him fix all the stuff you missed. its a blow to the ego. The better engineers realize that while others will always find their mistakes easier, they become better by having them discovered and by finding their peers mistakes as well. You have to look for the bad parts as well as the good parts.
