I'm having lots of fun with Debian. I put an 8GB card in my freerunner, and put Debian, zhone, and illume on it. (Illume is a fairly recent development, and it still doesn't work quite right. Here's how you install it if you're interested: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Debian#Illume)
Some spiffy projects once you get your OS going:
- Bluetooth headsets
- GPRS internet access
- GPS (I made a page on my Blog that plots my position when the phone is online. It involved setting up dynamic DNS using bind on my personal server. Fun stuff!)
- Maybe some games like ScummVM
I'm also interested trying to set up some VoIP stuff but I've yet to find any really suitable software.
