mikl-dk: Triggered by the question whether every execution of an application is done by the root-user, I started to wondering about the security in OpenMoko in general. Actually I found very little - near to nothing - and I personally think that's inappropriate for this project. We simply have to focus very much on security so that isn't going to be a pitfall. So please, let's focus on this! If desired, I'll be glad to join such a task-force.
Additional Applications Portal
mikl-dk: Since OpenMoko is open and is (going to be very, very, very) popular, a positive problem with lots of third part application is going to arise: the quality can vary a lot. I know there is a projects-section of this portal, but that's targeted to the developers and not the end-users. Maybe it would be a idea to create a repository of recommended applications by the OpenMoko-team.

Wiki Frontpage Facelift
Not sure who refactored the wiki's front page, but it looks awesome! Great job!
Question about programming
If I wanted to learn how to write applications for the Neo1973, and have a couple years of C++ classes under my belt, where do I start? I'm not talking about creating a whole e-mail application or anything, but I know nothing about the software and how it operates. Thanks!
Question about Java programming
Geert Schuring: How can i help? Im a java programmer and would really like to get involved!
Huan: I'm a flight student with a CS degree and I don't have time to create and implement my own project. I am interested in developing and implementing encryption algorithms and other features to make openmoko users harder to track. If anyone has a project they need help on I can code, comment, and Debug. I also am familiar with UML specifically OOP in Java, C,++,#, Perl, I can even dive into the assembly. I use Eclipse as my primary development platform. If anyone could use a part time contributer to their project I would be honored to be a part.
is there any word on if the hardware will change from the dev version currently being offered, and the retail version in october?

Other supported hardware (Sony Ericsson)
I have an old sony ericsson P800 that I would be willing to try OpenMoko on. How do I get started? I am a C++ programmer so technical stuff does not bother me. What do I read, where do look? Can I even think of using other hardware?
