    I was going to try it out last night, but seems there's no way to get it to run in Virtualbox: it installs, but locks up after rebooting. If they're trying to get developers using it, then I'd have thought that being able to run in a VM would be a pretty high priority to make it easy to test.

    Here, let me fix this for you: s3e3.

    Ah, I see the problem: it's _S_SSE3, not SSE3, which apparently is Intel-only at the moment:

    Surely Intel could have come up with a better name that's not so easy to confuse with yet another of their acronyms?

    That said, I just double-checked and couldn't find where I'd previously read that it required SSE3; so I may be hallucinating .

    The Meego web site says the x86 version requires SSE3; you could presumably recompile for older CPUs but I doubt there's any point to doing so... the primary market would be Atoms. which have SSE3.

    Unless it's a late-model Athlon-64 or newer, no.

    Ultimately locked to just beeing able to make another app/game accessed from the menu, which i find extremely uninteresting.
    I'm more interested in passive applications, typically changing the behaviour of the phone itself.

    I find that most phones are shit when it comes to displaying information quickly. I want to know what week it is, what date it is, how much money i have left right there on the front screen.
    More like customizing the OS rather than writing stand alone applications.

    I'm still looking to pick up simplistic phones, but i wouldn't mind beeing able to wrap up a custom program, and some freedom on how it displays and works.
    There doesn't seem to be anything like that, such phones i like use custom operating systems.
