Mike had mentioned this last month, but the event has taken place now, and
the UI has been revealed.

Sailfish OS designed by Jolla (somewhere between Y'all uh and Holla if
Holla started with a Y) based on Meego which is based on Maemo and some
other project that also died.  And QT and Mer are things too apparently.

Either way, it's a Linux based open source mobile operating system designed
to be more open (like Linux is supposed to be) than Android, uses smart
tiles like Windows (phone) 8 (wait for the suing to begin) and has a unique
take on multitasking.

Looks very cool.  I hope someone ports it to a device that i own.  Since I
have a Maemo running Nokia N900, there is a chance...
