Nokia Linux phone rumoured

,----[ Quote ]
| THE RUMOUR MILL has come up with another tale 
| about a Nokia Linux phone.
| The story circulating is that the Nokia N920 could 
| be released with Maemo 6 Linux next year.


Nokia N920 possibly already in the works

Nokia--like Sun--was being battered by Linux.


How Nokia Learned to Love Openness

,----[ Quote ]
| Another reason the geeks in the crowd were
| getting so excited was that the keynote was
| given by Matthias Ettrich, who occupies an
| important place in the free software
| pantheon, since he started and led the KDE
| project in the beginning. When I
| interviewed him nearly ten years ago, he
| told me how the name came about.
| He said he wanted to create a Linux Desktop
| Environment (LDE) without calling it that;
| he couldn't call it MDE, since that would
| look like Matthias' Desktop Environment, so
| he choose the suitably neutral K Desktop
| Environment.

| Viewer.
