Hello everybody, hope you’ve spent your hollidays quite well.
I’m starting this year with great mood and feel for something extremely new. So I’ve broke all my previous rules and entered great project outside of Maemo OS, but it’s 100% maemo related. Let me introduce – Mer!
So, first of all, some information bout the project itself.
The Mer platform is a Linux distribution for mobile devices based on the Maemo platform from Nokia. Mer goals include:
- Improving and developing parts of Maemo that are of interest to the Maemo community.
- Making it easier to port existing desktop applications by hildonizing and adjusting them to the tablet form factor.
- Encouraging third party experimentation and development.
- Supporting outdated tablet hardware no longer supported by Nokia.
- Making Maemo a generic platform for all tablet devices, including non-Nokia ones.

So, Stskeeps, one of Mer’s head voodoo shamans, has asked me if I can make some stuff for newborn project and I gladly agreed. The results are shown below: Mer now has modern simply looking logo and brand wallpaper (since “Mer” means “Sea” in French”. You can easily save it to your tablet and use if you like :)
It’s really great to get back to work on something after holidays and theres more stuff to come, and not only for Mer. Stay tuned!
