I found this today and that the OSDL/DTL (Desktop working goup) has
published it's yearly report and came to the statement that 2006 has
been the year of the linux desktop:

Linux Organisation membership and organisation politics is not my
business, but from the linux-user point of view it is a little
confusing that OpenMoko/Neo1973 isn't mentioned here:

Maybe it is not the right time to ask/talk about this, but I think
that OSDL is doing good work for promoting Linux and that linking
and cooperation would be a bennefit for both OSDL/MLI and OpenMoko...

Or let it me say in that way, it would be nice to read about 
OpenMoko/Neo1973 in a yearly report of OSDL/MLI, at last in the
report about year 2007.

Can you, or Sean, when it doesn't take to much time,  say something about 
OpenMoko and OSDL/MLI?


PS: IMHO LiMo looks like powered by lawers and I think that this foundation
    is not a cooperation by their hearts - so we will have several 
    advantages/chances to have a better, more efficent cooperation. ;)
