Should have continued with maemo , meego or whatever which is on
N9/N950 is a complete new system and is uncompatible by the maemo
which ran on N900 . They actually went into a new distribution before
they even kicked off !!
In contrast android is doing a great job .

There were hardly any N950 devices and by the time N9 / N950 reached
the homes , everyone has heard of Nokia - Ms deal . Though some
spirited Qt developers got out some great apps for N9 there was a air
of uncertainity .

Tizen announcement put everything on hold . And tizen is another
distribution altogether , currently running on "zero" devices .

Maemo project still releases community SSU , but it is like peanuts
because the bigdaddy Nokia is gone , and he left with all the secrets
