Not meaning to start a flamewar, but if your idea of just works is the same as 
the one on OSX, i.e only the lowest common denominator features with a GUI 
that allows one way to do it and one only (i.e. very stubborn) then I'll 
gladly pass on OpenMoko. The one reason I'm not using OSX is exactly the fact 
that it wont allow me to chose how I want to work...

We have enough dumb phones (even most so called smart phones), why not make a 
smart one for a change...
