[maemo-users] IT OS 2007 v.3 Upgrade

What bothers me IS the checkbox.  What concerns me about the "legal"
statement is this:

- I don't get a similar statement on a Palm device when I install non-Palm
software (it's an OS, people install software).
- I don't get a similar statement on a Windows mobile device when I install
non-Windows software.
- I don't get a similar statement on my cell phone when I install non-vendor

Thus, what makes the tablet different? It has an OS like the three
device-types above.  People are going to install software from a multitude
of locations depending upon what is available and what their needs are.

Thank you for this excellent post, Quim - I do appreciate it. It's
heartening to hear there will be more Nokia involvement and comment in
Bugzilla, it seems to be one of the more glaring issues that exists with the
current community process (although Jakke and Jakub have posted from time to
time, which is also appreciated).

As for the "Legal OKs", I'm not that bothered by them but for those that are
would adding a "Don't show this again" checkbox to the dialog suffice and
also be acceptable from a legal Nokia standpoint?
