Mer + Plasma Active Remember Maemo or Moblin? Mer is the sort of spiritual successor to those ill-fated mobile Linux distributions. Mer is being used as a base distro for the KDE Plasma Active team’s mobile system. Will we see hardware shipping with Mer and Plasma Active preloaded in 2014? I truly don't know. The pessimist in me says no way, although the optimist says it's a possibility. But even if we don't see shipping hardware, the technology being produced here is truly interesting and, in my opinion, hugely important for one critical reason - it approaches things very differently than the other mobile systems (such as Android, Ubuntu Touch or FirefoxOS). That alone makes it worth keeping tabs on.
