    True. Your post actually made me wonder, with all the astroturfing around:

    It is really hard to tell if thatGuy is astroturfing, or a genuine MS fan, it is always better to give the benefit of the doubt. But look his/her posts:

    Could you please find a more credible source than a blog written by a paranoid delusional nutjob?

    Yes, a delusional nutjob. This explains why it is presented as a repectable source of news in Wikipedia, right:

    Look I don't really care for microsoft, but at least there shit works as advertised.
    First of all: you sound very much like a troll.

    Secondly: The bit I highlighted sounds like its intended to mean "..as advertised, unlike GNU/Linux". A statement which is wrong, given that linux works precisely as it advertises itself. It claims to be user friendly. It is. It may not be perfectly learner friendly, but that hardly a little known detail.

    I was just thinking as meego is designed as a platform for intels chips. The OS is already ready for use. Maybe one reason for this plan change was intels failure to deliver on time.

    This would make some sense especially given they failed to announce their change of plan to intel. They could have felt they had made a huge comitment to the meego project even sacrificing there own popular and fully usable maemo os. Delays by intel would have resulted in them losing ground to andriod and could have caused much animosity. If nokia could go back in time its resonable to think they would have just have stuck to maemo.

    I can grantee you a real Master of software is a Master of Art and a Philosopher.

    Do you really think a Slave (engineer) do have a skill in his mind like an Free-mind Master of Art or an Philosopher?

    A engineer (Slave) can always be beaten by an real true free mind

    this philosophical issue.

    while I have met talented people all my life, the ones that can accomplish are always the ones that aren't the top 0.05%. They are the top 0.07%. the people at the rung above them are just to disfunctional to ever accomplish much.

    A good engineer regardless of occupation is someone who at the end of the day delivers a function reliable product.

    Linux users don't seem to get that.

    also to note freedom is a illusion.
