Promising, but never delivering

My thoughts exactly. Why spend so much time protecting users' data when there are no users and no data to protect? Why rewrite most core components when there are only a few discontinued devices out there? It sounds crazy. Perhaps they should have better built a new framework, rather than rework Maemo completely; it wasn't so great to begin with (although I liked my N770, I have to recognize its time was short).
My first thought was to imagine what android devs must think when reading this report, and how hard they must laugh. Get something out the door, now! Meego does not sound compelling even now, so imagine in a few years time. As a litmus test: how many cool KDE apps do you miss on your android phone?
