For those of you who have not been following the MeeGo on the N900, MeeGo has been ported to the device.  Being a cynic, I waited until I got it to work before posting about this activity.  It is not that difficult to get the MeeGo Handset UX on the device, but it may take some additional massaging (in my case I needed to flash the kernel twice).  Here is a screenshot in glorious technicolor:

There are good instructions here.  I took the easy approach and just downloaded the proprietary ready-made images from tablets-dev, used the windows 32 diskimager to write to the MicroSD card, and a linux laptop to flash the kernel.  I am sure there is an easier approach, but this one worked for me.
