Yes it is, and those who do not believe so should allow those of us that do value it to enjoy it in peace :-0 - I at least do not need to be told repeatedly how foolish I am for delighting over something someone else believes has zero worth.

>but the usablity of the phone hasn't changed much.

I disagree - largely thanks to Radek (who is being unnecessarily modest) it's usability has definitely improved. I'm using Qtmoko v54 (with the excellent replacement keyboard) which has 2.6.34 kernel. Since I only went back to using the freerunner as my daily phone when Michael released his work, I only recently realized how usable it is.

An occasional reboot is necessary, but no sporadic problem with resume. Power consumption is not great and I wonder if that would be improved by ripping out some stuff I don't need - I would forgo QtMaze for the odd micro amp ^_~
