Hej Ilya,

It can indeed survive longer than a day. Mickey did some tests and 
published the results here on the list.

We are working on FSO indeed. The current om distro you can find here[1].
Note: it is called unstable for a reason ;) It does come with paroli 
covering all of the screen as we are focusing on getting day-to-day 
phone capabilities in first before engaging in other areas.

Paroli is a good place to get active in right now. It is a python/efl 
based project split in several applets running in a single python instance.

We are currently working towards our third milestone[2] the second one 
is currently in graphics review ;)

See our project page[3] for more details.

If this looks like fun, get in touch with me and I can answer any 
questions and make the start a bit easier. I am sure we can find 
something that is fun (to me the whole project is ;) )
