MeeGo multitasking

The last time we saw MeeGo, it was a simple lock screen on the Nokia N9 that showed up a couple of weeks ago.  Today we've got some meatier screenshots for you that show off all kinds of aspects of the OS, including how multitasking will work.  Looking at all of the images, I'm definitely getting a webOS/Android vibe, which is not a bad thing.  Many people regard the card system of webOS to be one of the best implementations of multitasking around, and judging by the photos, MeeGo will borrow some ideas from Palm's OS.  While the OS isn't quite ready for public consumption just yet, these screenshots show that MeeGo is definitely growing, and it should be a strong contender when it does finally launch.

After examining all of the screenshots available, it's obvious that MeeGo will be pretty customizable.  There are different lock screens, different docks at the bottom of the screens, different app launchers, etc.  It's important to note that this is a stock version of the MeeGo OS, so it looks like users will have several different theming options to make the OS suit their needs.  So now that we've gotten a good look of some of the different bits and pieces of MeeGo, what do you all of the new OS?
