Hi Christoph,
after sleeping a night (and fastening my seat belts as every morning),
I think you have hit the key point:

we get sportive spirit by competition.

So the question is, with whom we (this community) are competing?

* QtMoko & SHR vs. Android & iOS & Win Mobile etc.!
* GTA04's flexibility and hw-modifiability vs. any commercial device!
* the art of self modifiable 3D-printed case vs. take what you get!


So let's start/continue/speed up competing against the rest of the world :)
