That intro was written when maemo.org was the official Maemo site. Now
there is http://maemo.nokia.com/ and http://forum.nokia.com/maemo that
actually answer pretty well what most users needing a Maemo intro are
looking for.

In exchange, maemo.org is actually not introduced properly anywhere, and
we are seeing plenty of new users these days quite disoriented on what
is maemo.org, what can they get and what can they do. This includes new
power users and new developers. Only us old user of the site are aware
of its full potential as a community space.
