This sentence makes it difficult to take things seriously:
"The N800 employs the GTK+ toolkit, originally created for the GIMP
photo-manipulation program and bearing all the hallmarks of inexpert

It's also not clear whether you are criticising GTK+ (just a toolkit) or
GIMP (It's UI is getting better all the time and I'm sure they'd welcome
constructive criticism).
