Unfortunately so :( , we are trying hard but due to so many major changes
we just dont want to push out something which is either poor quality or
half cooked. IF we still are able to beat the IT 2006 to public launch
we get things stabilized enough), we will push it out the door :)

Another reason, is we dont just want to push the Maemo 2.0 till we get the
public upgrade IT 2006. Since we know Maemo 2.0 would be binary
the applications cross compiled on the development environment would not
on the current IT 2005 edition (on device) out there, so developers cant
test it on the device.

What do you guys think? Should we try to push out the SB development
environment early, even if the developers can test apps on real device?
