Mer is a new Linux operating system, built upon a thin base of Ubuntu Jaunty combined with the best open-source elements of Nokia's Maemo platform.

The goals of Mer 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 tablet hardware no longer receiving updated OS software by Nokia.
* Making Maemo a generic platform for all tablet devices, including non-Nokia ones.
* Focusing Maemo community efforts in platform-related areas

The list of applications looks impressive. I would also like to try this, but I do not see anything on the site regarding the Zaurus. When I get a moment I will have to figure out how to build it.

Sounds cool.

But - not even thinking about installing on a Zaurus - where are instructions for installing on a N770 or N810? What I found is how to install and use all the impressive apps.
