I started openmoko-today in desktop mode on my Bv4 (instead of 
matchbox-desktop 2 which I had there). My first opinion:

- background color does not match UI scheme
- lack of icons on buttons
- unknown area with "0/0" text and strange gradient background
- misses calls/unread messages text is hardcoded (can ignore that fact)

I suggest changing text "missed calls" to list of missed calls rather. And 
generally I hope that one day user will be able to select 
dateformat.. "Thu 01/Jan/1970" is not my favorite one..

For me best desktop now is matchbox-desktop 2 - but this one is unreleased 
yet so only SVN builds are possible.
