Windows A few days ago, Microsoft released the long-awaited Windows Phone 7.8 update for all those users who will be stuck on Windows Phone 7 forever because there's no upgrade path to Windows Phone 8 other than buying a new phone. Now that it's here, what, exactly, does WP7.8 to the table?

I own a Nokia N900. ^_^ It's my first smart phone. I bought it a few months ago. I didn't know it was capable of doing that. ;)

I wonder if any new phone will have that capability...

There's a lot of stuff you can do with the N900 if you just know what you're doing. I installed Gentoo in a dual-boot configuration on my phone, and true enough, I did it over SSH because typing it all would be rather time-consuming on the little keyboard, but it is still perfectly doable. Right now I have the phone mounted on the wall, running an RTSP-server streaming audio and video so I can keep an eye on things even when I'm not at home.

I wouldn't count on that, unfortunately ;) Possibly Ubuntu - phone, but other than that...
