This project is not aiming at small phones, it's aiming at MIDs and
Netbooks which have sufficient storage. Nokia currently runs docpurge on
their devices because it installs Maemo on a 256MB flash rom, but I
wouldn't really install Debian to a 256MB flash anyway; and use some
parts of the 32GB eMMC instead.

If there is a use for an even smaller system, we can still go the route
of Emdebian Crush or Emdebian Grip; depending on how small we want it.
But as MeeGo will be for Netbooks and the x86 architecture as well, we
should start in Debian.

Freesmartphone.org is the other way, it has its own software. My idea is
more about the things coming from Nokia and Intel, i.e. oFono, Connman,
and the rest of what will be MeeGo.
