Ari Jaaksi lead the MeeGo development for Nokia and left for HP sometime back. While he has reason to cheer with webOS making some big announcements last week, he did have some words for his old friends at Nokia it seems. Writing on his personal blog, Ari expressed his disappointment with the Nokia-Microsoft deal and here is what he had to say:
On another note, I worry about my old friends a lot. I’m sad to see they no longer trust they can make a difference. They’ve given up and given away their passion. Sorry, that ain’t gonna work. You must believe in yourself and what you are up to, and you must believe you can change the world. That’s the only way I know.
We should also note that his comments were on a post that promoted the recent webOS announcements. Certainly, writing about Nokia gives him attention for webOS!
