Maemo – a Linux based operating system and mobile platform from the Finnish communications and information technology corporation, Nokia. Software applications designed to run on the Maemo platform are developed by the Maemo Community, a nonprofit, open source community sponsored by Nokia.

Maemo is a modified version of the Debian GNU/Linux distribution, reconfigured for mobile devices. It uses libraries from the GNOME project, the Matchbox window manager and the GTK-based Hildon framework as its GUI and application framework. The GUI uses the GTK+ toolkit and Hildon user interface widgets and API.

Maemo operating system is designed for Nokia Internet Tablets, which feature very similar specifications to Nokia’s high-end N-series and E-series cellphones, with TI OMAP ARM SoCs, large screens, and expandable internal storage.

Maemo comes with a number of built-in applications such as Mozilla-based MicroB browser, Macromedia Flash player, Gizmo5, and Skype.
More applications can be installed from a 3rd party sources, via “Application manager”, or APT and dpkg.

At the Mobile World Congress in February 2010, it was announced that the Maemo project would be merging with Moblin to create the MeeGo mobile software platform. Despite that, the Maemo community continued to be active, and in late 2012 Nokia began transferring Maemo ownership to the newly established Hildon Foundation.
