Rome was just made up within one day?

It was an issue so I thought about to write at my tumblr What really Nokia need.
But this post's main theme was important for this blog, too. So I will write it here.

There have too many speculation about MeeGo. Why?


MeeGo was merge project from Nokia's Maemo project and Intel's Moblin project. I know it was already progress a lots but it still need a lot of time.
And open source project can't just get good result like FireFox project or OpenOffice project within one year. It will take much of time.

I found that OpenOffice project was starting around July 2000 which Sun's StarOffice source code was released. So how long does it take to the commercial stage?


MeeGo was starting around in this February or later. MeeGo's welcome post was Welcome to MeeGo @ February 15, 2010 by Imad.
So it was just 6 or 7 month in development and people are crying and crying (especially who?) about Nokia wasn't release the MeeGo device.

So this very reason Nokia will not officially support MeeGo to N900 because commercial device can't support to "Beta stage's operating system". It's that simple.

MeeGo's official blog was posted this: MeeGo calling – on N900 @ October 13, 2010 by Harri Hakulinen.
I haven't read whole thing but I noticed that MeeGo was open source project so if many people join and want to do something, MeeGo will support it. Because that's what open source is all about.
But I don't think people notice about it. That's why some people thought that MeeGo official blog says MeeGo will support N900 which means Nokia must support officially N900 on MeeGo.

So some people asked to Nokia whether Nokia N900 will support MeeGo.

Here is what I've got tweet from @thenokiablog

That tweet's link is this: Nokia N900 PR 1.3 Update Coming Soon With Dual Boot to Meego @ October 13, 2010 by Mark Guim



Don't confuse about this, please.

I am not saying it was people's fault. I am saying Nokia didn't properly telling to the people about MeeGo. That's what this all kind of rubbish speculation was came out.

What if Nokia was telling people like this "commercial product can't sell with Beta Stage of Operating System like MeeGo" and other things like "open source project usually takes a time for out of beta stage".
Don't you think people will understand better?
