But isn't that the thing with everything?

I can't see why copypasteing 100 lines would be different from running
a script with the same commands? (ok, except that you can stop, make
sure a step is completed and then continue..)

No no, it's very well made, on purpose I left QTmoko to be the last
one so no-one would vote it!

The truth is that it wasn't there at all when I published the poll -
because I forgot it, not having followed closely what happens in the
QT world. SOmeone pointed it out for me and I added it, and I only
could add it as the last one.

And someone's got to be the last one.

And if you vote, you try to look for your distro, no matter if it's
the last or the first? I'd like the doodle layout to allow more space
but I guess the scroll bar is visible enough..

and one more, the poll only represents the part of the community
that's 'active' ie. reading mailing lists, irc etc: as over 10 000
units are sold (with uboot and OM200x in them) this really doesn't
represent the whole population..
