Qtopia has been open sourced for more than 6 years now, from it's 
beginning. It wasn't any open source competition that resulted in 
opensourcing the telephony stack, it was a lack of a perceived threat to 
our business if we did so, and much work by Qtopia engineering. Granted, 
the Neo was part of the reason why (we wanted to release this port, but 
the Neo is a 'free' phone, and we couldn't very well release a closed 
source Qtopia for it, no matter how good it is), but the timing of the 
Neo made it appear as if Trolltech were only reacting to it. It has been 
a long time in the making.

No arguments, everyone is entitled to their opinions, but I wanted to 
set the answer straight.
