True, i am a power user (when i want to) but normally im in the  
category that wants stuff "that does just work"

Actually having linux installing apps on a separate memorycard is dead  
simple when you dont have to worry about windows stuff like registry  
or drive letters.

Im not using my inernal memory card for anything atm. So installing  
Maemo on that would be an option.  But as i said above, why doesnt it  
just work? (Out of the box that is)
