I would change that to "Maemo" devices.  Linux, the kernel, is certainly
not to blame for a clogged up user land, and Maemo is so different from
any other existing GNU-or-not-GNU/Linux distribution that it is solely
responsible for all its shortcomings.

(In other words, I only ever reinstall my Debian GNU/Linux OSes when the
hardware get replaced, and I run 'unstable' on everything.)

Unfortunately, Maemo hasn't had a chance yet to gain real long-term
stability.  The life-cycle of a Maemo version is too short for that, and
there is no continuity between versions.
