I missed a lot of this kerfuffle.. and frankly, I'm still a bit confused... What does this mean for current N900 owners? If anything - like will apps still be made and updates released etc?

p.s. is there any documentation on how to play the sheep game?

Yes, there will still be updates (one pending, followed by the update bringing Qt 4.6) and apps for the n900. Qt 4.6 should bring more apps faster, too. It's not yet determined whether the whole kit-n-kaboodle of MeeGo will run on n900, but then it was far from certain that Maemo 6 would either.

Hopbeat has made a video of the sheep game in action here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujg7KqW5igs I'm not allowed to watch it as it sets my dog barking!

that was my biggest mistake to buy N900

so my very expensive device is already outdated and will not be supported in near future. F**k you, Nokia!

You do realize that MeeGo actually means N900 is MORE likely to be supported in the near future, right?

Re: that was my biggest mistake to buy N900

Precisely. Not to mention that this will attract a whole bunch more developers to Qt to produce apps.

Does it matter if it's 'outdated' if it does what you want?

have you never bought a piece of technology before?

*EVERY* time you buy something, it is out of date, at least with the N900 you have joined an active community (look at the folks *still* talking about the 770, a device that is 5 years old!)

Yes, the N900 is no longer the new "shiney-shiney" device, but for those of us that have been around a while, we new that the N900's successor was already being worked on as the N900 was being announced!

s/apt/deb/ in paragraph 4, but yes. (rpm is a package format, apt is a package management tool)

You know, the daft thing is I originally wrote 'fedora and rpm' and 'debian and deb', then I read something somewhere and thought "I've got that wrong" so I edited it. Goes to show you should trust your first instinct when you don't know what you're talking about. :p
