The user interface for this release comes from the DeforaOS project:

It resembles LXDE in its focus on smaller footprints, while considering
embedded devices as important a target as regular desktops.

Only parts of GNOME Mobile are necessary and used in this environment,
mainly Gtk+ and PulseAudio. The look & feel is plain Gtk+, with some
inspiration from Symbian. Even DBus was replaced with X messages where
possible. The GSM code was written from scratch as well, and is directly
part of the Gtk+ application handling telephony.

Hope this clarifies a bit,
