No problem. :)

It actually came installed with an older version of the Openmoko
Stack, with the familiar GTK applications. It didn't work very well
and it's since been erased. :) I am under the impression that the
version shipped once it's on sale will have a small set of Qtopia
based applications working and that updates will be released shortly
after that to add functionality.

So, what came installed on the one I have probably won't be installed
on the ones purchased from or from a reseller.

I wrote "The Freerunner doesn't come without accessories, however."
which is probably a bit confusing. :) My apologies. This means it DID
come with some. "It is not lacking accessories" is probably a more
clear way to phrase that.

You're doing well enough. :) Any questions you have might help me
decide what ends up in the reviews I write, so I'd appreciate the
input. :)
