I would like pointing out that Minimo started as a project to get
gecko based browser running in linux based devices, and first versions
ran in Familiar/GPE based devices months before windowsce version was

My suspects:

Years ago, Nokia started a project to get a full linux device running
gtk based apps, with matchbox window manager and gecko based browser.
That's how minimo started, funded by a R&D Nokia project. After
months, Nokia decided to use Opera in its first linux/gtk/mb device,
and the minimo team started on its windowsce version....

That are my thoughts., based in my experience in GPE and MB projects
(in their early stages...)
