Gonna first answer this one small ogg bit.

My mplayer (on Debian) didn't skip when left alone when I was on a
trip, but it usually started to skip if I had frameworkd + wicd +
zhone + tangogps all running in the background. I mostly just needed
frameworkd and tangogps, though. The key to success is probably
compiling some program (eg. mplayer) with the integer-only tremor ogg
decoding support. I'm going to have a look at that soon now that I
noticed this severe enough "multi-tasking problem" with ogg playing.
Without it the CPU load is 60-70% which is pretty high for a 400MHz

But right. I think I mostly covered my anti-whining already in the
whining thread, even though this thread would have been a much better
place for it. In addition to the Cool Stuff, I'm also one of the
people who also use it as the only daily phone, and mostly since
August 2008. Of course buzz and echo fixes made GSM life much easier
settings wise.

I love RSA authentication to home 24h NAS box (running ARM port of
Debian as well, like the FreeRunner). Having instant messengers and
IRC there gives a possibility to check those from FreeRunner at will.

And I mentioned already in that other post that copying photos from
camera to Neo via USB host mode is a neat feature and then Neo can be
also used to back them further up to eg. the home server from anywhere
around the world (...with WLAN access points).

Om2009 as a dual-boot backup OS is useful sometimes as well, though
less so now that the occasional xf86-video-glamo WSOD problem on
shutdown got fixed (I then booted to Om2009 to run fsck on the SD
