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

I'm seeing the updates today and I'd love to try this on my zaurus 3100!
Any word on Zaurus instructions would be appreciated I'm sure, even if it's months from now, we are out here and would like to try Mer!
