Hi Tilman

I think they prefered to use an existent project, because they need 
something running and to concentrate their energy to hardware part. They 
want to concentrate to the project of hardware, not in GUI writing.

According me is a good idea to reuse the software wrote by other people. 
In every case the software previously written in not trashed. It is 
released with open licences and it can be implemented by someone who 
hate too much Qtopia.

Concorrence is always good for users :)
