Openmoko was a combination of several things:
- Open hardware.
- A phone running Free Software.
- A phone running standard GNU/Linux software (e.g. X-Windows).
IIUC there are many more people interested in the second than in
the first.


PS: There's a general expectation that open hardware will run Free software,
    but w.r.t open hardware's GPU that doesn't seem to be very often
    the case.
