I received my OpenMoko freerunner this monday and I played around with
it the whole week and this is my experience with it.

I didn't like the software that came with it (I guess that is 2007.2),
I just didn't like the look and feel of it. So I installed ASU on it
and that felt better, but it isn't quit stable. So I installed 2008.8
from the build host, these feel more stable, but can't seem to find
the installer on it ??? So, now I'm running Qtopia on it which just
feels much more mature and stable and makes the phone usable as a

Now, what is the best thing to do? I guess I would like to keep using
qtopia as long as 2008.8 isn't ready for every day use. But now my
question is: is which version should I install on the sd card? The
official 2008.8 release and try to update that or install the version
from the build host? Also updates don't seem to work (I have usb
networking and added a nameserver to resolve.conf).

And now I just want to say that is a really nice a good looking solid
feeling machine and I like playing with it :-)
