Just to be clear, when you say "what is official", what do you mean?

Is this applications shipped with the device by default? Or applications
created by Nokia? Or applications in the "Nokia applications" repository?

I'd like to think that eventually, applications written by anyone in the
community can become "official" and be installed by default in future
Maemo devices, if they prove themselves capable.


(For the rest, I agree - if we're not talking about user-targetted apps,
the impact is small - I just want to clarify the meaning of the
often-used word "official")
