Haven't seen anyone else post this yet...forgive me if it has.

Most interesting: "...What is scheduled to be available then is the first and very raw baseline to a source and binary repository to build MeeGo trunk on Intel ATOM boards and Nokia N900."

people seemed to be reading too much into that one line,
we have always known meego will be capable of being compiled and run on n900, this don't mean nokia is releasing MeeGo on n900 officially.
what puzzles me is why it states atom and n900 and not atom and arm, that sounds like to me after harmattan nokia will use atom

Dont Know, I thought Atom was still far too power hungry compared to ARM. Definitely interesting reading though, hoping the N900 has a positive and long future as its a great device.

it says intel atom AND n900, so my guess is atom for future + n900 (present)

It looks like you are the one reading too much into that line.

The MeeGo project is the responsible of the MeeGo releases and hardware *they* support for *their* releases. So yes, the MeeGo project will release images for the N900 that will be official, you will be able to file bugs, propose features...

The current supporters of MeeGo are Intel, Nokia and the Linux Foundation. The LF has no own hardware so has nothing to support. Intel has chipsets and development boards (there is no Netbook from Intel, they are from vendors using Intel chipsets) and Nokia has devices (no ARM development board from Nokia). Hence the logical conclusion of announcing support for Atom boards and the N900 at this point. This will change if other vendors appear offering official support for the hardware they are responsible of.

but that does not mean nokia will release meego as a n900 upgrade with there UX and all nokia services for end users which is what people are thinking by reading that line.
if it did mean that nokia would not be announcing it on some obscure blog they would be making a big deal out of it at some conference.

This thread is about MeeGo Day 1 and that blog post, indeed.

What that blog post talks about is MeeGo vanilla support announced by the MeeGo project. This is not Harmattan support with Harmattan apps by Nokia. It's Nokia and not the MeeGo project who has the word on Nokia deliveries.

Still, N900 users concerned about "the future of the N900" now know that their hardware is in the real track for future support. More answers to come as the Harmattan alpha release approaches.
