there are limits to that, or should we all be rolling our own
operating systems from scratch? just think, 6.5 billion different
kernels to try. wow, i'm in install heaven

there comes a tipping point, when the sum of the effort used to
develop the distros/guis/maps outweighs any benefit gained, because
we're all spending our time doing so much admin work. there are
probably enough linux forums out there, even those specific to mobile

the OP would likely have more of a positive effect by spending the
time he will use administering the site, contributing to another linux
mobile phone forum. possibly. YMMV, IMHO, etc, etc.
