Its hard to explain what is so good about
I use it on a Nokia N9 and i get a lot of stick for not having an iphone or an android device or even a Backberry because i don't have "apps" or it doesn't have a dual core processor, but it feels so natural to use that all the short comings don't' really matter. When i first opened up the box and turned it on, it felt like i had being using the OS for as long the mobile phones have been in my life, yet still exciting and fresh to use.
Then on a technical point, it is relatively fast on a signal core processor (some programs/games can bog it down) and its interchangeable with some of the Debian repo.
Its not committed to the grave just yet, there should be 2 years support for the software from Nokia (if i remember correctly) and there are roumers that there could be 2 lower end devices for their next billion phone project.
Windows phone 7/8 doesn't make a device cheap, apart from licensing costs, there is also the choice of hardware and generally its favored that it should be on the higher scale to get the "rich" experience that the user wants from the software. Where as Meego, being Linux will run on just about anything.
(I do know Android is based on Linux, but its gotten a little boated and is more a canvas the real access to the OS)
(Personal note: I wish Windows mobile would just step aside and let Meego be the third way)
