I have seen the Zaurus die due to lack of support (not lack of choices though) and I am glad Nokia is taking this path to wider acceptance of Maemo/Meego by going this dual route.

And I am glad to hear that Meego will be supported on the N900. All these contrary 'expect analysis' (read rumours and innuendos) flying left and right was getting the better of me in these forums.
And that's why reading wikis and digging deeper into details *cough* by performing a search *cough* will always result a happy face.. just like this:

I asked some "people" in Nokia, they told me it will not be released OFFICIALLY, instead it will be available to download in external firmware packages (like with windows mobile scene)
Believe it or not...its up to you

It is a question of dividing resources, so they probably will consentrate fully on Meego after PR1.2. That is why it is not good to hurry with PR1.2 until all known bugs and design flaws are really fixed.
Nokia wont do that , there are always more bugs...they will support N900 for at least two years. MeeGo 1.0 wont be as good as Maemo , also we still need Ovi Maps to work properly

I read couple of days ago that Nokia is going to release another Maemo device in summer.

Err... Qgil works for Nokia (community relations I think). Though I think your right in some way, it won't be supported officially (e.g. Ovi Maps or whatever)

Harmattan/MeeGo no doubt.
To me Harmattan/MeeGo is just next version and clearly better than Maemo 5, but that will of course really seen with first device releases. Talking about Harmattan/MeeGo.

You do understand that Quim Gil (qgil) is a Nokia employee right? And not just any employee.. Read more about him and you will know that whatever he says, is true.. Believe it or not... it's up to you...

and @laughing man... Why wouldn't Ovi Maps not be supported?? The new Ovi maps afaik is going to be created under the QT framework.. and afaik MeeGo runs QT natively.. So what's the problem there?

Depends if Nokia offers it on Ovi Store for free, or only bundles it with new Nokia devices running Meego.

How can you expect people to choose between an available OS and one still in the making?
You should ask the same question in 6-12 months
