You'd have to be mentally ill to use Symbian for anything.

What's wrong with Symbian, apart from the paltry hardware Nokia shoved it on?

IMHO symbian is far superior to both sailfish and android when it comes to capabilities . Maemo may beat it though.

Especially the devices where better for symbian the last one of its kind E7...and all the ones before it with keyboards

The OS though was dead long before it was killed by nokia.

Call me mentally ill then. I also love assembler as to C++ ao.

Okay . In fact i meant meego as well when i said maemo. My bad. But after closely following everything about sailfish for two years now , somehow i feel sailfish is a step backward from meego. With all its oom issues, i feel symbian , maemo and meego handles those oom problems with a bit more grace. Sailfish doesnt have that grace with its oom killings. LIke you said IMHO. Not a public opinion.

Technically speaking Maemo and Meego did not change a thing qhen it comes to oom. They left the defaults of debian and turned oom active killing off. So kills only happen when the min_free value is crossed. But I never came so far as the whole system would stutter and freeze when memory gets really full until it comes to a halt.

So in general the fine tuning of Jolla for SailfishOS is a little bit cleverer as I never got so far and always had a working device.

You have not had the misfortune to have to write any software for it, have you? I can say with clear conscience that I had never seen a worse piece of excrement, before or after.

There was one thing Symbian did well that other mobile platform could learn from. Not that Symbian was the only OS doing that, nor that Symbian had invented it. Palm did that too. Execute in place. I will never understand why you need to load the code into precious RAM when you could run it straight from the flash and keep the RAM for things that need to change. That would also reduce the boot time from minutes to milliseconds.

IIRC Execute in place relied on a particular kind of memory chip that would be impractical in today's more complex systems but yes the jump from UIQ 2 to 3 where they also did this despite the improved hardware and more RAM resulted in death of UIQ IMHO.
