Of course we have. How do you think we are trying to get to a device that is 
ready for end user ? And this is just the beginning. We will work with more 
designers for the UI, the housing, etc to continue the direction towards the 
mass market.
But that does not mean all that is perfect right from the beginning or that we 
don't listen to constructive criticism. Please help us making it better by 
_demonstrating_ a superior solution not by sending more emails.

What do you mean with "these" developers ? Everybody certainly has a different 
opinion than others on something.

I don't get what you trying to say here.

Sorry but this is just not true. I don't get why you follow this childish 
witch-hunt game.

Meant was: Openmoko pays much more attention to installable solutions and 
listens to hackers that provide those instead to people that complain all day 
long but don't get their hands dirty.
