they do? let me know the day their accelerated drivers for 3d are open, and
i'll re-assess that situation. until nvidia come open on their desktops i doubt
they will consider being open on their SOC's - the day they have open drivers
for their SOC's - let us know. until then they are a totally uninteresting SOC

openmoko is about open. first and foremost. i would love hyper-performing
amazing graphics and system grunt like anyone else - but NOT at the cost of
being open. see the archives on this - this has come up before recently and
openmoko's position on this made clear. :)
