Wow

Incidentally it seems you can't have a message reply under 10 characters here. Mmmm, no one word answers then.

From memory I think it was Peter. I remember the conversation went along the lines of "I know we said two OS releases but as the next device is so far advanced of what we have now, its just not possible. If we can get it working then great but its not a focus point and maybe the community can do some back porting but if they do, the experience isn't going to be anything like the new device". This was a conversation at the booth at OSiM.

I think there was also a quote from Marcel(?) during the desktop session at the summit where the statement was made that two OSes included diablo (obviously contradictory information with the above).

In fact, I'm sure I typed it into #maemo the moment it was said so the IRC logs should give us an exact date & time :-)

The original statement (saying that each device would enjoy at least two major OS releases) must have been made before October 2007; when I first wrote about it and looked for sources, a post here from Oct. 2007 was the oldest reference to it I could find. (I'm not gonna search that one again now... ...)

Which, of course, makes the whole thing somewhat pointless. I cannot on the one side complain that our current hardware is soooo dated because it's from 2007 (looong ago) and then expect them to still do exactly as they thought they could back then (because hey, 2007 was only yesterday, wasn't it ).

just nooby user for said if performance about hardware upgrade and performances in the serie is very liched by animated ui and iphone zoomy copy api-bibi-...maemo4.9.9.9 is not here...

i probably put a same base of maemo4.9 + ++ on the new hardware n900 just for push maemo4.9 just so fast and CONSOLIDATED...

cause like i see here...all new really hardwares+ performance be oriented in profit of the new ui-animated...timer load all around...iam afraid to got a slowly reactyvity in the usefull use in the preview of maemo5

the best dream for me can be the maemo 4.9.9-9 on my new n900 or rover or whatever+ the new gsm and hardware improve annonced but on the N810.

maemo4 can be better improve and be more powerfull on the new n900 hardware...bryded then maemo5 for a lot of application...

Iam hurry to make a test speed in copycat application on both device for shure...

well, I could careless about whether or not the 810 got its 2 releases or not, Im just saying I have a great device with very capable hardware, even if it is a bit old and slow, this is where *nix shines, making the most of hardware, not HOGGING resources like it was coded in redmond, wa. if you ask me NONE of the maemo releases were ever 100%, there is still no PIM support (thats worth a damn anyway, gpe & ermig sp? just barely cut it)
all the releases were buggy and quick to slow down, I have an sd card freshly formatted to fat32 my n800 uses it just fine while the 810 says its damaged or unformatted, the video player was always choppy even with NOTHING else running.... the whole fiasco leaves a bad taste in my mouth and anybody who says the n8x devices were treated fairly, is either a complete lemming, a nokia employee, gen antillies or they have more money than sense.

I paid like 350 for the 2 tablets 1 n800, n810 and now the support has been dropped, im friggin livid, I can only hope that mer will see a fully functional nit OS, cause IMOP NOKIA never achieved that.

if the new series is so great, then they should continue the maemo 4 line, my palm 3x had support for like 5 years or so, nokia dropped the ball on this, but the community (- the lemmings) should pick it up, I have mer dual booting on my n810, I just cant seem to get anything from the repos listed in the app mgr, so I guess its time to give up on nokia doing the right thing and move on to MER.

I'm gonna ditch this taco stand...

BTW,

If they think anybody burned by nokia on these NITs will ever buy another nokia device they are as crazy as they are disloyal, I would have never bought one of them if I knew they would only support it for a year or 2, if its that disposable why not just make it from cardboard?????

still very angry,

hey, my Palm m130 had 0 days of support and my Palm T|X had nearly 1 month (they released a Wi-Fi BUGFIX update... for $5).
Anything is better than the "old Palm" for me.

I do know the "really old Palm" provided paid OS upgrades... but the changelog between 1.0 and 4.1 hardly fills an A4 sheet.
