I'm sort of disappointed. The proposed hardware of this phone gave me wet dreams for the last few months, yet the review implies that it chokes with its operating system. Boo.

Too bad we're not at the point where one could sideload a different operating system onto any smartphone hardware.

Folks have loaded an Android OS to the N900, Linux other than Maemo has been loaded to it as well. I believe someone figured out how to get Windows 95 to run on it.

If open source continues to gain steam the day may be two to three years out when you can load just about any OS to your smart phone that suits your needs. That will be grand.

That day has not yet arrived so S^3 is the flavor you can get your N8 in.

To each their own... I'm getting mine next week, and I'm excited as ever =)! Android OS is too dependent on google services, iOS is too narrow viewed and restricted, and Blackberry OS just doesn't appeal to me at all. With Symbian, I can control it and tweak it to my liking. I can have access to google services, I can sync it with my Mac, and all without subjecting myself to apple or google's point of view. Hmph, I can even duplicate the UI of iOS or Android; should I ever want to shock anyone, lol!
