Anyway, thank you for these comments, i'd love to use it eventually !

I don't know if it's due to kernel (andy - 2.6.29) but I manage to get
fixes even when I don't hope so (in my office, 4 meters from the window).
> Does not work yet (wifi-radar - wicd) - I think I have a dependency
No real problem here, I use wicd.
It works quite well, but is quite slow...
What I did actually :
1) Installed wicd (apt-get install wicd)
2) removed wicd from start-up (with update-rc)
3) in the openmoko-panel-plugin, I put in
post-activate : "/etc/init.d/wicd start; wicd-client"
pre-deactivate: "/etc/init.d/wicd stop; pkill wicd-client"
With this, when you activate wifi from om-panek-plugin, known networks
are automatically connected (if told so in wicd), wicd client shows an
icon in the tray.
And when you disable it, everything shuts down.
> Works well - I have tried it with the mokomaze game (apt-get install it)
With last kernel, since it's EV_ABS instead of EV_REL, applications like
mokomaze have to be modified.
Beyond that, accelerometers work well for me, too.

No auto-rotate, just a rotate application that I launch from the menu.
Sometimes works, sometimes not.

With more time, I'd like it to be fully functionnal =)
What windowmanager/panels system are you using ?
I'm using matchbox-wm + LXDE (not the best, but fast enough).
