    Phoronix: Jolla Presents Sailfish OS MeeGo-Fork

    Jolla, the Finnish company that was formed by many ex-Nokia employees that were responsible for their MeeGo work and the Nokia N9 smart-phone until Nokia jumped in bed with Microsoft for the Windows Phone, finally showcased its Linux OS today: Sailfish, a fork of MeeGo Linux...

    No not yet, that's part of MeR/Nemo's Zypher project, it will eventually though...
    And as to those pondering over the UX, it hasn't been decided to what extent the entire UX will be open/closed, it depends on how their licensing is fully fleshed out.
    It may turn out that most of it's open, I think what will happen, is that Jolla will keep some bits closed, but keep most of it open for all Alliance members to use/extend.

    And Sailfish is not really a fork of MeeGo, it is *kinda* a fork of MeR+Nemo....
    MeeGoCE (not Harmattan) was barely advanced before all resource were dropped at the start of 2011, they've just plodded along with the same code-base.
    I guess you could call MeR+Nemo (on which Sailfish is based) a fork of MeeGoCE, but it's less so than MeR+Nemo -> Sailfish.

    Probably not at wayland still doesn't work on top of any of the ARM SOC's.

    No. He's very likely just killing time with trolling. The stupid people are the ones falling for it.

    That was a very new way of doing things. Oh wait it is not. It is right next to iphone on the shit-o-meter.

    FAILphone.
    As far as I understand - it should be open sourced soon and it should allow community to build own version for N900/N950/N9!

    For the critics in this thread - What do you expect them to do? What are their options right now? I really don't see your criticism as constructive in any way or give them a path to put food on the table for their families.

    For everyone else - Sailfish will use Myriad Alien Dalvik so it will be able to run most Android apps plus I have a feeling they or hackers will help along the libhybris project once a community starts forming/gaining momentum up around this OS which will happen since Android hackers will crossover and linux hackers also.
