I speak for my geek pride, more geeks and more hackers, any project
like Open Moko will only get better. I remember the days when running
Linux on older laptops was a more compatible choice for hackers, and
now even the latest greatest hardware runs Linux out of the box, this
is just to mention now and then of PC market basically. There will be
more examples and there are more stories to be made.

I hope you are not mistaken, perhaps its Nokia who needs these geeks &
hackers not those geeks & hackers needs Nokia.
I do hope Meamo community at large understands that, and I wish them luck.
