Oh, so I was wrong - but I feel *much* more comfortable with
an project that is open from the beginning - with full support
of the hardware and the interest of the hardware producer to
have this hardware+SDK as long term stratgie instead of
reverse engineering and the danger that next generation of
hardware will have some tricks to try to prohibit installing
an other OS.

But when you know these projects a little bit - do you know
some ideas what these hackers whant to make better on this
phones - something we could make with Openmoko as well?
