Chuckle. M$ effectively took over Nokia and is driving it into the ground. Fortunately a lot of their laid-off staff are competent to use FLOSS in a new venture. Like Phoenix, rising from the ashes, Nokia is being reborn as Jolla and flying on the wings of FLOSS. M$ should not have expected the discarded workers to just sit down and do nothing. Now, Nokia and Phoney “7″ will have even more competition. I wish them luck. The field is already crowded but MeeGo/Linux or Tizen should perform even better than Android/Linux because it’s native code.
“A group of ex-Nokia staff and MeeGo enthusiasts has formed Jolla (Finnish for "dinghy"), a mobile startup with the aim of bringing new MeeGo devices to the market. According to its LinkedIn page, Jolla consists of "directors and core professionals from Nokia’s MeeGo N9 organization, together with some of the best minds working on MeeGo in the communities."”
