Moblin is Fedora based, while Maemo is Debian. How're they going to sort that out ? This does sound like it could potentially be very good, but right now I'm just wondering wtf are Nokia at.
If they think this is the best way to go then fair enough, but the continual bullseye moving does leave end-users wondering what support we can expect in future for our devices, and that lack of confidence doesn't exactly encourage me for one to spend my hard earned cash.
I was about to pull the trigger on an N900 several times but held off due to lack of mapping apps and have just changed from an N95 to an N97 instead (which I must admit is working well after the latest firmware update). But my fave app Viewranger is going to be launched on IPhone and Android too, so unless Nokia really get a shift on and settled down it looks like Android might be my future, despite Maemo being a far, far more attractive proposition.
Nokia right now is a giant multi-tentacled, multiple-personalitied schizophrenic monster, with several tentacles waving tasty goodies, many waving mediocre goodies, and the rest all trying to choke the life out of each other. They really, really need to consolidate.
