yeah, its a lot easier to fight against all the open source guys
shivvying into position to make *the* bomb distro for the freerunner,
thus destroying all hope of 3rd-party developer markets being
established in any sphere <less> than that of a full-distro-is-my-
application base ..
seriously. i only wanna participate in openmoko so i can rip the bits
i need out to provide phone services, and glom my application in the
rest of it, put it on an SD card, and sell that. there is a huge
market for this precise kind of custom-application vendor service in
the corporate world.
and so this is -precisely- why motorola and co., are defending their
hardware base. open source is nothing without silicon.
