I have been both a Nokia user and a Linux user for quite a while. So when Nokia started to do Linux devices, I was thrilled. I was one of the few people that got a Nokia N800 Internet Tablet with Maemo when it first came out, and it was a great device. Browsing was two steps ahead of everyone else. Then when they finally put Maemo into a phone, I pre-ordered the Nokia N900 before it was even released. Awesome device too, way ahead of the curve at the time. A full-blown Linux computer in my pocket! I immediately started developing an app for it. I could use Python and GTK, and development was fun. There was good documentation, and development was going well in the little amount of spare time I could set aside for it.
