LXer: TLWIR 35: Open Versus Closed Mobility ?? The Nokia N900 Versus The Nokia Lumia 900

Published at LXer:
When Nokia’s N900 smart phone was released on November 11th, 2009, it was a revolutionary device. The N900 truly contained the power of a desktop computer in the form factor of a mobile phone. It ran the Maemo 5 Linux-based operating system, and its hardware specs made geeks around the world drool. So why did Nokia turn their backs on a device so far ahead of its time? They were offered a deal that they found too good to refuse. That deal led to the Lumia 900, and other Windows Phone 7 Nokia smartphones. In this edition of the Linux Week in Review, I will take a close look at how the three year old Nokia N900 measures up against the much newer Lumia 900. Is the Lumia 900 doomed or is it destined to become a smashing success?
Nokia Lumia 2520 (Verizon) Can It Run Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 28, 2013
I just got the Nokia Lumia 2520 from Verizon today and it is an awesome device (hardware wise) but Windows RT just flat sucks. Almost none of the apps I use regularly will work on (or have been ported to) Windows RT. I am in Internet Explorer hell with no hope of using any other browser among other problems I am having.
Is there anyway to run Ubuntu on this device (preferably in a dual-boot scenario)?
Now for something completely different... My review of my new Nokia Lumia 929 (Icon).

Some of you may be interested, others not. I just thought some might like to hear a linux user talking about a Windows phone. Don't flame me too hard for at least exposing this a option. I know we all "hate" Microsoft to some extent. But at least hear me out...
5.3 Inch display
2.2ghz Snapdragon Processor
2gb of Ram
32gb of storage
First things first. It's a Windows phone. Oddly and similarly to Linux in the computing space.. We're fighting for apps that giants like Android and IOS have. The odd thing that I find amusing though, we're talking about Microsoft being a underdog with a computing device. I'm guessing Ubuntu Phone will have the same issues when it goes live also.
The phone shipped with regular Windows 8 mobile. I didn't hate it, in fact, I never really "hated" Windows 8 in general on either a desktop or a tablet device. I just didn't think it was fully baked when they released it. So, about 3 days in with the phone, I upgraded to Windows
NOKIA 770 vs Ipod touch
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 5, 2007
I was thinking about ordering the Ipodtouch, but I realized it doesn't have a pdf reader. It has a huge screen, but no PDF reader? I am kind of tired of slugging the laptop around to just view emails, check few pages, ssh to home machines, and read few ebooks. Now, I am thinking about getting the old Nokia 770 and keep on using my old 4th gen IPOD for music.
Anyone had a good experience with 770? I know N800 exists, but the price difference is very high. I just want ssh client, pdf reader, vnc, browser, basic video podcast viewer, and IM device. It seems like 770 can do all those things. How well does it integrates with the Gnome Desktop? If you have any experiences with this device, let me know.
Nokia N900: Maemo vs. Android what makes Maemo a winner?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 6, 2010
Because many people have suggested that my prejudice against Maemo isn't backed by facts, I would like to ask people who are more intimate with Maemo to share what makes Maemo better than Android based on core functionality, development support, supported languages, interoperability between apps, the ability to change any element of the interface and the shell with another (like change the keyboard, the contact app, the camera app), syncing and cloud-computing etc.
I found the Nokia N900 Unlocked Maemo only $479, I'm open to suggestions why I should like Maemo. Then i may get one
migrating from windows 7 ; thunderbird vs evolution ; nokia sync
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 15, 2014
I am in the process of migrating from windows 7 to ubuntu. everything was going swimmingly - I have a dual boot with w7 (just in case!) setup thunderbird to point to the same profile as w7 so I can easily swap back and forth. My main issue now is I used to use outlook as a calendar and contacts app in w7 because it's all I could find that would sync with my phone (Nokia asha ; S40)
so I want my setup to be like so:
to use thunderbird as my email client : I would also like the addressbook kept in sync with my phone somehow
to use some other calendar/contacts app(s) in ubuntu : I tried evolution but I'm stuck setting it up as it's insisting on email setup
to sync my mobile with calendar / contacts somehow : I tried the sync program but when I looked at the contacts it hadn't imported all the info (e.g. missing addresses)
I am open to almost any solution except :
- any that involves cloud sync
- migrating email from thunderbird - I really have grown to like tb and also I am beta-
Ubuntu 12.10 Cinnamon vs Mint 14 Cinnamon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
I'm switching from a Mac to Linux and am still in doubt as to which flavour I'm going to be using.
Ubuntu seemed like the obvious choice but after trying out several distros (many of which Ubuntu based) I decided that Mint Cinnamon was going to be it.
Until I found out you can install the Cinnamon desktop on ubuntu. Which I tried.
Hmm. It looks equally nice as it does on Mint but still, I've got the impression it runs just that tiny bit better on Mint (i.e. more fluid - and I tend to ditch something at the first sign of even the slightest hint of 'jerkyness').
Ubuntu would seem like the logical step when coming from a Mac : it's the most popular distro out there and the Unity interface in some ways is very similar to OS X. But, I have to say, I 'dislike' Unity with a passion (not going to use the word 'hate', seems a bit too strong - it was OK I guess in 12.04, terribly slow in 12.10). Mint Cinnamon touched me right away (although I'm currently trying out OpenSuse 12.3 KDE and I must
Ubuntu vs Mint
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 16, 2013
Just when I was about to install Ubuntu, I had a "why not look at Mint" question thrown at me. The reasons, my friends said, is that the Mint desktop (Cinnamon) is more like Win 7 plus the fact that Ubuntu has "lost its way" like Microsoft did with its illegitimate child Windows 8, in trying to be both Desktop and Tablet Operating System. True or False?
1) I am a Desktop only user - for business, no gaming whatsoever
2) I never have used the Windows Start Button except to shut down the computer. I never start programs from the Start Menu. I Do Not Need a Start Button.
3) I prefer to organize my icons with a program called "Fences"; and would like my Taskbar on the bottom of the screen(s) and absolutely not on the side of the screen
4) I need to network with Win 7 workstations and a file server.
2) Which of the two is faster? Ubuntu or M
