Hello Mark,

You have a valid point, but what I know as a matter of fact that Nokia has
developers working on Maemo and they are paid developers, I still agree with
you that they are not that many and no lots of applications are out from
them but I see that is normal because that is the target group of such a
device GEEKS
so, we buy it to work on it and pay Nokia in sense of time
