A slight logic error is that, to my knowledge, Trolltech never expressed that 
me, you, the OpenMoko team or anybody else MUST port Qtopia to the Neo1973 
(TT must be chuckling quite a bit by now). The difference is, that since 
there IS a GPL version of Qtopia (as opposed to a GPL version of Windows) 
anybody, me, you, Joe GNU Coder, anybody interested could potentially do it 
EVEN if there is no commercial interest for Trolltech to do so (which was the 
original claim - since TT developed Qtopia 'they' should port it to the 
Neo, 'we' should stick to GTK and the original framework).
