I agree entirely regarding transparency etc. but there are two distinct
problems here. FIC's responsibility to their employees and FIC's commitment
to Neo/Openmoko.

Re-allocation in large companies can be tricky and stressful for everyone
involved if not handled properly. I imagine Sean is working hard to get
everything he feels he needs to really pick up the pace on the Neo hardware.

That said, given that we accept the Neo hardware is not vapourware, the
community has plenty to be getting on with in terms of Openmoko. Lets keep
faith in the passion that Sean has shown so far and keep providing
encouragement for the core team.


Good things come to those who wait :)
