Update 8/28/10: Using the Mac lately. Its playing nice with the N900 as you can see with the Mac OS X section.
Sorry MAC users. I have never used a MAC. Incidentally, a colleague loaned me his Macbook Pro yesterday. He wanted me to see how in the Mac world “it just works!”. It will be interesting to see how well that plays with the N900.

    Hi Mustali,

    This is an awesome table and I can see a lot of work went into it. Would you mind greatly if I used it on http://www.mynokian900.com ? In fact I have never done a guest post, but on this one occasion if you would be willing to share your post on my website, then the opportunity is all yours.

    Cheers,

    Mike
