Thanks to the guys at WOMWorld/Nokia for being very kind to send me a Nokia N900 for two weeks.
I have also bought Nokia N900 just before arrival of the device from WOMWorld
One of the reasons I like this phone because it a Linux based phone. Its not only phone, its mobile computer
It doesnt took me long to get used to the used to the Phone. Nice UI, WIFI, 32 GB memory
One of the best I saw for the first time on the phone is X-Terminal

First thing I did after using basic applications is install Easy Debian. A nice procedure to install Easy Debian is given here. Now I can use PHP and MySQL on phone
Overall the Phone is good. Huge repository, nice applications. One thing I was worried about after buying a phone was using Maemo 6 on it. But Nokia and Intel merged Maemo and Moblin project to create Meego. But Meego will be running on N900
The phone was with my fiancee for a week and she had to say this:
1. Awesome Camera
2. Battery should have been better
Updated after Advin’s comment:
Sketch application in N900 is awesome
Following 2 images are made by my fiancee:
And these three images are created by Advin (designer at Raw Engineering):
Why doesnt she love me?

Footers in all three were added by Advin using Photoshop.
I will be attending foss.in 2009 This will be third time I will be attending it. I had been there in 2003 and 2004.
I will be at Debian workout. Kartik will be leading the workout and I will be working on reportbug with Aamod.
Kartik gave me good news today.
Kartik is officially a Debian Developer now.
I have been using Linux since 2001. And amongst all the Linux distributions and other Operating Systems used Debian is my favorite.
I love debian because of the bunch of reasons:
- Its free.
- It is the best development environment.
- It is not bloatware like other distributions. It works on my old system too.
- The /usr/share/doc directory is great.
- People think debian is “only for geeks” distro. No its not. It includes all the applications that can be used on daily basis like Office suites (Openoffice, KOffice), Audio/Video players (Vlc, Kaffiene etc), Browsers (Firefox is known as Iceweasel in debian), Messengers (Pidgin, Kopete) and many many more. My sister is not a programmer but she uses debian too.
