    The netbook version is fully featured. It is just a slightly different shell, but any program that is able to run on say Fedora or Ubuntu can be packaged for Meego Netbook UX. So yes I would say it's a fully featured linux distribution. In fact you should be able to install any rpm's packaged for Fedora on it, so you have the entire RPM Fusion repos to use.

    I bought into maemo years ago with the Nokia N770 and N800 tablets. I would have gotten a N900 except Nokia went and turned it into a phone . Nokia never totally committed into the open source strategy, mismanaged what they had committed and basically let apple and google catch up and walk all over them.

    MeeGo look to have a lot of potential but was all for nothing once the M$ alliance thing came about. Though my next mobile device will likely be android based, I really hope they can keep development going, more competition & innovation means faster evolution and more choices for us consumers.

    I lost interest when Intel and Nokia merged Moblin and Maemo. Moblin was looking pretty nice in terms of a software stack (Gtk, Clutter, etc). Then Nokia had to get involved and push their baby, Qt. In hindsight it was a sabotage.

    Oh lol, how timely "Intel: Our Nokia Partnership Was a Mistake" :

    I've tried Meego back when it was still Moblin, and it seemed pretty full featured to me.. I was able to install packages from the commandline (not sure if there was a gui tool because I usually don't install packages from gui), oh, and there's functional terminal with all the GNU utilities.. That's what Android lacks! Featureful terminal with all those gnu utilities!

    Hmm nokia will release N9/N950 or what the heck the name will be probably in this summer. It will be powered with maemo/harmattan OS so still no official meego phone from nokia.

    Quim Gill supposed to introduce harmattan in San Francisco Meego conference may 23. to 25., but session were declined by authors.
