When Nokia junked Maemo / MeeGo effort and committed fully to Windows, we
had the following thread in PLUG.

There were emotional articles like this

There were predictions that Nokia will realize the mistake and turn back
to open platforms

There was also a prediction (though made with a hint of humor) that Nokia
would be wiped out because of this decision

Whatever happened is in front of us and it's interesting to remember how
we looked at what was a still a mobile phone giant at the time of above
thread.


Now good to have a thread predicting where Microsoft goes from here with
Nokia in their kitty.. Will be interesting to revisit this thread 2-3
years later...
