It convinces me too, and I'm participating in OpenMoko solely for the  
reason that I want to push out some end-user apps, developed new and  
fresh, for the platform.  When it becomes more widely available, that  
is, I will be quite happy targetting it as a major platform for my  
music apps .. as it stands right now, its very rewarding to be doing  
daily builds that can run on both EEE PC and OpenMoko with very  
little fuss, and it sure is going to be interesting keeping this  
party going for the next few months ..
