I can't tell if your being serious or trying to troll but the whole point is the user experience and it would be a better user experience in my opinion if it was based on Mer.

The point of porting Fremantle is to provide full compatibility and reuse all quirks and hacks for power management etc.

Of course you're free to run Mer on Neo900. It should be pretty easy, especially after Fremantle gets ported.

I understand that but will we be limited to the 2.6x kernel or would be able to use 3.x. I mean even the N9 was stuck on 2.6 for some reason.

There is ongoing effort to get 3.1x kernels working with stock Fremantle, will all stuff from Nokia 2.6 kernel forward-ported. It will take some time of course. Join #maemo-ssu, that's where most of this stuff happens.

please check the Neo900 thread for all hardware related questions. In short we're not expecting to have first prototypes this year and from prototypes til "mass production" it will take another few months. Please don't answer on this post in this thread, head over to Neo900 thread

Thanks
