Maemo + Moblin = MeeGo

The King is dead, long live the King!

So, Maemo is on the way out... to be replaced by MeeGo as announced today by Nokia and Intel. Exciting times ahead!

I think this is a good move as you now have two massive companies dedicating resources to pushing forward a linux based OS for mobile phones. The big drawback of course is it seems like Nokia is throwing away all their brand awareness they've done for Maemo which is really sad.

A little puzzle for you: me + ego = ??

I've got a blog (The MeeGo Fan) which I'll dedicate to writing about MeeGo (as opposed to this one here which is more random tech subjects), where I've already discussed such enlightening topics as a possible mascot for MeeGo (a little hint: Mi-go).
