Maybe this strategy has paid off since now Nokia is hiring those geeks to work on the Maemo software platform. This is a good sign for the free software movement because Nokia is flexing its muscles in the business arena pushing both its free/open source platforms: QT/GTK+ Maemo and the upcoming open sourced Symbian.
Way to go Nokia. Only be fast because I need a new phone and I have decided to buy one that comes with freedom attached, no strings.
