and OpenWRT, and Gentoo, ... nslu2-linux is distribution agnostic :-)

Indeed.  See http://www.linuxdevices.com/news/NS3535328630.html

Perhaps we can do the same for the Neo, and make it the third most
popular mobile phone ... ;-)

I am expecting to get a developer device so I can ensure that the NSLU2
SlugOS distribution (which is built using OpenEmbedded, and shares lots
of basic infrastructure applications with OpenMoko) has all the
capabilities to fully network/sync/etc with the Neo via bluetooth and
USB.  All you will need is a USD$80 NSLU2 and a USD$20 USB bluetooth
dongle (although I recommend the Linksys USBBT100 which will set you
back USD$40) for your home server.  You can even add a USB disk drive
and do lots of other stuff too.

[Yes, this *is* a blatant attempt to make sure that I am on the
developer device early-access list :-)]
