Re: Running linux apps on the n900

My feeling is that Maemo represents the most direct route for Linux apps to handheld devices and to what are now designated "smartphones" but which are likely to be the typical cellphone just a...

Re: Holy **** - 50 to register to publish to Ovi?

For Ovi to reject applets from individuals is to go against the Apple iPhone apps model (which has proven wildly successful). And to force small American companies not doing business in Europe to...

Re: T-Mobile prepaid

I had the same question, and so I went looking for a T-Mobile card in Amsterdam two minutes after getting the summit loaner.

Re: N900 not till Jan 2010 on Tmobile USA!!!!!

There must be some logic to how T-Mobile's plans fit together, but I haven't been able to figure it out. (Not that the maze is any simpler than other carriers'.)

What is this $5 plan being...

Re: Which version of Ubuntu for a mini-laptop?

My son's Asus Eee freezes in the middle of the boot-up process, so when I brought it to the summit I booted it from a USB drive with Eeebuntu on it.

Worked fabulously. I don't know the other...

Re: N900 Not the perfect phone?...apparently not

Have to agree with this. With emphasis:

The UI is lightyears beyond Maemo 4 for finger usage.

This is something that shouldn't be downplayed.

Re: nWiki, my version of TiddlyWiki

I think the marriage between TiddlyWiki and the N810 and N900 was made in heaven.

Re: Maemo Summit registration reaches 300 participants limit: next steps

I know I'm stating the obvious, but since I am among those whose plans for attending the summit have switched 180 degrees, I hope we can allow for a "lucky losers" list too.

I'll post all of my under-one-hour's experience, but the first strongest impression was how multi-tasky the N900 is.

Re: Google announces chrome OS. This is real big!

Even if it doesn't, the development of web apps will be spurred by Google's actions, which can only...
