I've got my N900 last week! Never owned one before! It's my daily phone now. My iPhone 8 still sleeps...

It depends what do you want to achieve with this device? I got mine, when it was young and rocking through the mobile world, then, for a long time I have no use for it, it was only the backup phone.

In nowdays I still use it, when I don't use a n9. I had poor knowledge about unix system before, today it improved significantly as now I have a lot of fun trying new things, learning more about some would say silly stuff I already know. This is good time killer for me. Apply something like stats/overclocks scripts and see how it is working why it is not working and so on.

I got is as my phone most of a time, because carrying 2-3 devices
(Even I still have n9 as close backup) is pointless and I would never recommend for user only as phone today.

No matter, welcome to maemo-n900 wonderland

But what I´m really missing is cutetube (doesn´t work) and an instant messenger, who runs also on android and iOS.

What do you need exactly? There is Pidgin in Extras-Testing repository that supports between others facebook new messanging proctocol.

I'm using Pidgin with Telegram and Facebook messenger plugins. Both work fine to my needs. Telegram plugin supports both sending and receiving photos, Facebook plugin supports just receiving. Also neither support nowadays' fancy Emojis but gives you white squares instead. So if your friends are used to post lot of them, you can only guess if that white square means a heart or a poo.

Cutetube also works. Find a package called cutetube2 (from extras-devel I guess). It works, but sometimes it gives you that "no streams available" -error.

Imho, nowdays n900 is still better suited for social media and day-to-day use. than younger sister n9. n9 lacks supports, maemo;org is now all about n900 and maemo (+Leste). With proper configuration n900 will work with everything but n9 from day to day is fading away.

Only swipe and performance wins over n900

And it is so much more desktop feeling on the road than any mobile!

Just imagine typing an answer here in browser and use ctrl-c, ctrl-v even from just received mail.
Or if you made typos or big mistake (accidentally deleted whole written stuff) just use ctrl-z ...
