I enjoyed reading Sean's criticism. He states at the start of the
document that he likes the n800 and I believe him.

One thing I really like about maemo is there are things improving in
every rev. Has anyone else been disgusted about the same gui problems in
release after release of pocketpc? Things that look like hyperlinks are
really buttons with side effects... that awful dialog when you start to
edit a recurring event... these rankle me every time. MS seems
determined to never improve these but at least with maemo there's a real
chance to see fundamental improvements.

No one should get offended by any facet of this discussion. I won't get
religious about an object store and if there is someone out there who is
passionate about having extra gutters, you should be able to voice it
without recriminations. :)
