A Galaxy Note with Tizen on it would be a dream! I would have tried Meego Harmattan too but I don't think it has been ported, even in a VM like Ubuntu.
^ The people hanging around here already have a phone and we would like to use the one we have. Besides, having to keep dual-booting back and forth is really not worth it; you'll have some stuff on one OS, other stuff on the other one, if you need to quickly access something that's on the other OS that's not currently running it'll take several minutes to reboot..
Of course one can install and run all kinds of Linux - software on the Note by installing it on a chroot partition, but that does still not give access to the more intricate details provided by Maemo/MeeGo nor does it give access to regular X applications.
Since this is an N900 related thread, I'll just pile on.
Got a question with USB host cable. I have one that works with the N900, but then when I try it on the Note, it doesn't seem to work. No matter what I plug to it, nothing happens.
Does anyone know if their pinouts are the same or not? (I'm guessing not for now...)
