You're talking just about the UI, Maemo is (headed to be) much more than just 
a finger friendly skin on a stripped down Debian. For example, the connection 
handling, location based services, integrated contact services, battery life 
considerations, syncing and the general on-the-move approach of 3G+ netbooks 
is much closer to where Maemo is headed than what you get with a desktop 
distro. Whether Nokia eventually wants to make that base also available with a 
netbook or mediapad oriented UI, just slap Moblin on it, or simply continue 
recommending Windows, is a different matter.
