Jolla's Sailfish OS is much more then "just another Linux distro" this is full blood movement of mobile enthusiasts who escaped from "great companies" slavory and now they are dancing and singing their freedom from oppressors. I think Nokia and Intel will look and will regret what they have lost. The MeeGo was a murdered chance, and the lost one for something great. Now this is Jolla times, and Sailfish. Old school system from previous century can go to a museum IMHO.

Give a chance to independent techs to create new innovative OS n ecology. Its million times better than being walled by closed environment of iOS. I really wish Jolla a very good luck! Also waiting to see what Mozilla comes up with, when they release new Firefox OS. Peace!

And finally we see a baby who has No future, and will never be welcomed in the world. Jolla isnt so "Creative" company like apple nor a giant company like google. It will lag behind even WP.

Its not android but u wana run android apps creating runtime environment? Make ur own app store then be proud, whatever android is also open source, if u hav shame, dont run android apps on ur dumb "selfish" os. ST-Ericsson is the dumbest semiconductor company. You wil never able to bring something "highend". Lag behind iOS n Android.

hmm.. using android apps makes the sailfish OS an android and even if sailfish OS has its own apps. People will still use android.

One way or another, remember that BB10 OS's multitask, the way the sistem show you the programs running is largely inspired by MeeGo Hamarttan with a touch of WebOS.

This one will attract many people, since it has Good UI (like a combo of wp8+droid) IMO....
If they'd to copy, why copy 4.1 if 4.2 is latest....
