Boy.....THAT does sound nice to my ears...
the words ..."...having a choice...".
I have a solution for you - take a big SD card, divide it into partitions, put one distro to each of them and... move the hard decision to a moment when bootloader asks you which distro to boot

Sounds like my old N900 back in its day! I had around 6 different OS's (including Maemo) at one stage!! Good old days!

So it feels like people are indiffrent with their default choices btw replicant is making quite a buzz already so i did like to say editing the neo900 site with nice eyecatchy slides/banners citing diffrent operating system can be used normally giving a peek of what else is available and other unique capablity features specially why one should get one . Maybe throw in some useless acessories stikers would make some sence. Overall a bit shiny and imformative page apart from what we have there would not hurt.

The N900 itself was able to run KDE. (Video here.) So I don't see any reason why the Neo900 wouldn't be able to.

I ran KDE(2) on my Toughbook CF-27 Mk3 with 128MB RAM and a Mobile Pentium II 333. OK, it took 2..3 minutes for OpenOffice to start up, but it worked.
I think on a ARM Cortex-A8 1GHz CPU with 1GB RAM KDE should just run great

What about GNU/Hurd or Debian_GNU/Hurd?
Giving 'customer' choice of pre-installed Operating System would be... interesting.
Best wishes.

All this talk about the freedom of choice and all that jazz is nice and groovy but really - will the Neo come with a pre-installed OS of any sort? The last thing I want is to spend €700 for an unusable device, whether in the name of "freedom of choice" or not.

Does it mean Neo900 will never run (Neo)Fremantle? I wouldn't imagine using the stylus for everything I do (remember Easy Debian)
