I hear you. I was very enthusiastic about Maemo, lukewarm on Meego. Now that it's pretty much dead in the water, I'm glad I didn't spend *too* much time retooling.
Perhaps if someone (not Nokia; they apparently will have one, dead-on-arrival Meego phone) comes out with a solid Meego phone, I'll get happier about meego. Don't see the point on netbooks; plain Linux works great on them (atom is now my main chip on mobile and small server).
