I haven't turned my FR on since I got a nokia n900 a few weeks back. It has
all of the things that appeal to me about the FR - I can 'apt-get install'
the software I want, I can ssh into it, etc. *BUT* it's better in so many
ways. The UI is so much more responsive, the phone is so much more
reliable. I can confidently make and receive calls! It has fantastic
built-in email and IM apps, and I can run pidgin for IRC. Evince works
great, and the wide screen display is gorgeous for reading e-books. It very
reliably connects to wifi... It does a great job of playing SD TV episode
video. I could go on for a while longer...
About the only real negative I've noticed is that the battery life isn't
great - I get maybe 12-14 hours on a charge --- it doesn't seem to be
suspending at all in the sense that the FR does - I think it just blanks the
screen and maybe slows the processor down...
Oh, and the equivilent app to 'openmoocow' isn't quite as nice - which is
almost a deal-breaker for my 2.5 year old daughter - she definitely prefers
