Thank you for all the effort you put into that wiki page. But maybe we should change some parts, as the conclusions drawn, are in some cases based only on 'belief' rather than actual comparison. For example Linux is the best way to program. All that still stands true, as Openmoko is all about programming is a very subjective statement (I would agree but still). Further I don't get the reason, why there is a description of the OM-Framework on the bottom of the page.

I started changing on some minor parts, undo/propose something better if you like that more. Just some thoughts.. --Jonci 20:15, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

OM frameWork is their to let readers know that how it is equivalent to Linux when comes to programming on the platform

[edit] Updating

I think this page really needs to be updated! It's mostly about the old Openmoko software stack. As there are multiple distributions for the Openmoko phones now I think this page should rather be about the hardware, explaining that the Neo is the only phone which allows using a completely free software stack (at least at the moment). --Marko Knöbl 16:22, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

[edit] What does .NET have to do with networking?

The article refers to libmokonet both as ".NET" and as a library for computer networking (GSM, Bluetooth and GPS). Is it unrelated to Microsoft's .NET framework? Then why is it called .NET?
