Hi Michael,
I think you and your team are doing a courageous but good choose.
I ask only that if in the future this choose will limit Openmoko 
openess, you will "protect" us!
A lot of people that are afraid that Nokia, as owner of Trolltech, can 
be against Openmoko freedom, but I think you are not stupid and you know 
what are you doing.

Good luck!
