I think Till got the best results so far, he has a touchscreen that gave some repeatable results. (tslib might be the thing to try for touchscreens)

The mouse is the current biggest limitation for the rest of us. By tweaking things in xorg.conf I got the left mouse button to work (verifiable by clicking it, it brings the edit icon on the home screen). However moving the mouse didn't work :/ Then I got busy with other stuff (making the maemo.org server move happen).

But network (usb) can be made to work, so installing and running things is doable from command line. However without the mouse you can't do anything.
