Hey Chris,

I feel your pain reading this thread. Don't be too discouraged.   
There are those of us out there that understand and agree whole  
heartedly and applaud your *more than a passing attempt* at  
explaining why OpenMoko is a GTK-based platform/framework to the  
endless hordes who want to talk all day and all night about Qt.
