    How can Windows release a mobile OS ?. Windows is just an obnoxious product from Microsoft.

    Period.

    From what I understood from your post. It is actually bad news that Nokia is not embracing the Andriod OS, which is the first step in bringing Free (free as in freedom) Software to the majority of humanity.

    Beware. Usually most of the Andriod phones encourages you to install non-free (freedom stifling) programs and this is bad. Folks at the Free (free as in freedom) Software community have started a project called Replicant which aims to come up with a Fully Free (free as in freedom) Andriod.

  2. Sorry for the mistake. It should be Microsoft actually!
    Its good to hear about Replicant. Let me check it out Sid!
