Curious. I like my N800 since I finally got everything I wanted running.

However, the N900 clearly has some way to go before it would interest 
me. I'm unclear why it was necessary to break so much that was working 
in OS2008 in order to make Maemo5, although I'm sure the developers had 
their reasons.

Maemo5 is clearly an experimental platform, whereas OS2008 is (now) a 
usable tool -- in its turn the N800 platform was to some extent an 
experiment when it came out. Maemo5 does not seem to have learned as 
much from the N800 experience, though, which is a pity. Maybe in a few 
years I'll be able to afford an N900...
