I never liked Nokia and was fan of Motorola because of Montavista linux
based MotoRokr E6. After an unfortunate death of E6 I started looking for
alternative Motorola Smartphone with full linux.  As Motorola is completely
in relationship with Android I decided to let go my grudges with
Nokia and bought Maemo N900.

I appreciate the hardware and effort Nokia had put in Maemo but leaving it
for Windows is like traitor Hittling in the Back.
