    Default tegra 250 abominations

    can it be installed on Toshiba AC100 and alike ? android sucks, old android sucks more and unmaintained nvidia blobs suck the most. a good OS, like this would make that tegra bullshit worth something.
    too bad there is no non-tegra ARMv7 PC portables :( at least, none i know of.

    You'd have to do some hacking to compile all the Netbook UX for ARM (that's only available for x86) and compile the kernel, adding the tegra specific drivers (I think their video drivers are binary only??). It should be doable as all meego code is open-source, would be an interesting project.

    These guys have an awesome looking ARM netbook http://alwaysinnovating.com/home/index.htm I hear they've had a lot of problems with production though, so their latest devices are yet to be delivered to any customers.

    so, MeeGo team officially not even working on "netbook" UX for ARM ? :(
    too bad but real issue still nvidia's binaries. most people orgasm and splurge their shit all over the place about divine happiness given by Nvidia when topic is software support for GPUs. but with tegra you fucked as much as if it were VIA's GPU.
    you use binaries for android's 2.2 kernel (2.6.29?) and some of its userspace or you use vesa (nouveau also has 0 support for tegras). and it's not only for GPU. tegra is a name of entire board and there is some other stuff which is controlled only by obsolete binaries. and by the way, no android 3.x support either.
    nice, huh ?

    awesome ! i always dreamed about thing like this (Touch Book) but didn't thought it actually existed. this is ideal PC portable ! this is how this it suppose to look like.

    give me this thing with MeeGo or Opensuse on-board, give me N900 (or better, theirs improved and updated successor-versions) with MeeGo and my tech-craving is satisfied for years to come ! and i would buy one for every family member too. hell, i would pimp it to everyone, that would be ideal picks for laptop-like and phone-like segments respectfully.

    ...ah, but, of course, this one is a little outdated, GPU support is questionable too, as quantity of binary components needed (how good it be with modern Free distribution like Opensuse or Ubuntu or with tuned MeeGo actually ?) and Nokia's R&D is in a middle of destruction, N900's successor, probably, cancelled and its software support is lacking (no OTG without crutches, wtf ?).
    and the market is filled with useless, electricity-wasting, artificially-obsolescent-via-abandonware/blobs bullcrap in both segments ! whoopty-fucking-doo >:

    Meego is a full-featured OS? It seems to have almost similar restrictions as Android...
