[moderator's note] Ridd92, please delete this duplicate of #3010 post to improve S/N ratio of the thread. thanks! [/moderator's note]

About a year ago I wos complaining about the neo900 beeing already too old platform to be sufficient in everyday use. Now I can see, that project didn't take a single step forward. We, as our dreams stuck on the neo900 beeing the best device you can have is floading away.

Now I realized that waiting for device that gone too far in the dreams and ideology is pointless. What can I say? I'm still using all maemo devices platforms with joy, don't care about a super-fantastic reincarnation.

Now I know why nokia project died, because it was too far in the future. \Neo900 brought me to the past and n900 is still better device that neo900 ever will be. We all need to accept that.

Now we can focus on PostMarketOS, but I don't want to be sceptic, but the project will die sooner that neo900 did.

I'm very dissapoited about neo900, but what can I say? It is already in the past.

Just a reminder,

after trying to use an android,

the venerable n900 is probably still the very safest
most secure tethered modem you can use
to patch a pc into broadband internet.
too bad it is still only 3g.

What's really sad is that “finally” in the thread name.

Yes, and No. The Droid 4 is ancient device as well, has non-resistive touchscreen.

Side note: I do not recall that the Neo900 targets SFOS

Much as I prefer Maemo over Sailfish any day and much as I consider Sailfish a step back from Maemo rather than forward, even I have to concede that targeting Sailfish is the way to go. Maemo is - and trust me, I am not saying it lightly - well and truly like the sketch in nieldk's link.

Hey, better "finally" than "soon", right?

One of the best comedies ...

Tom does one of the best jobs in it...
He has a scene...where he laughs...
and it is by far ...the best laugh ever..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhrSzUm3zhU

God...there is just SO much in that laugh...
Best laugh ever...

Speaking of tragic comedies...
When do you think the neo900 will be done?
I'm guessing 2 weeks...

When I were a wee lad, my parents used to take us on long hikes. My little sister would get tired/bored quickly and would always ask how far did we still have to go. My parents' answer was always the same, "100 metres."
