</div></div></blockquote><div><br><br>I don't really agree with the stance that Linux is a bad word here and I don't think that it is bad to associate with "Linux". Microsoft has been pushing Windows Mobile for years to try to leverage their so-called easy to use OS as compared with Palm. Not that Linux is the all powerful word to use to get people on board either. But to say that openmoko is built on Linux (or GNU/Linux for the truly hardcore) is generally a positive thing because Linux is the embodiment of open and free in the current computing world. The thing that must be stressed is that the phone is open, not closed, both in speech and in beer.
<br><br>One more thing. I'd agree that people watching TV commercials may not know what Linux is (except for those IBM ads a few years ago). But youtube ads...come on, most have at least heard about that non-Microsoft thing!
