We've had this discussion on these mailing lists lots of times before.
Competition is good, choice is good. In the end, everyone will benefit
from being able to choose what to run on their phone.

As far as I know, OpenMoko Inc is not about to throw away all the hard
work that has gone into creating the OpenMoko platform. If you want to
use Qtopia, good for you, but now that you have made that choice, please
allow the rest of the OpenMoko community to continue working on their
own platform.
