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.

It was pretty much inevitable with the Amiga, and not because of management... ( http://www.osnews.com/permalink?539079 & its minuscule at its height share compared to the PC http://arstechnica.com/articles/culture/total-share.ars & note how none of such platforms survived - except for consoles, but their manufacturers have a matching business model, of extracting money from dev houses, which couldn't had been introduced for Amiga once the cat was out of the bag - people would really dislike that, everybody ignored CD32; Apple just sells PC tech, the new "Amigas" are really just PCs with weird CPUs for no good reason)

Ehh, this will be the next Amiga myth (seems it's cool now to clung to the stretched-ipod-nano N9 ...myths about its sales numbers, and smooth experience of the OS)
