Look at it this way: Sure, full official MeeGo support for the N900 by Nokia would have been optimal. BUT! Compared to Android, we can run MeeGo on our N900, as opposed to Android 2.2 on a G1 or other phones.

So all in all, I think the way things turn out are okee. It could be worse.

From my understanding, correct me if I'm wrong please, is MeeGoo not longer Open Source OS ?

You're wrong, it is.

The MeeGo operating system is open source, it's just either hardware drivers or user software added to it by individual vendors that may or may not be.

No it's open source. What made you think it wasn't? The problems are that the drivers for N900 hardware are closed source.

About MeeGo 1.0 Core release for N900

It does NOT include

- Mobile UI/UX (N900 will boot to Xterm)
- Reference Applications

It is intended for MeeGo developers for development purposes, and

- has practically NO value for end users
- has little value for MeeGo application developers.

Please do NOT install it if you don't know what you need it for.

For mor in formation, pls. see
