Right, I didn't mean to slam the platform, I was lamenting the fact that I can't buy a Linux cellphone, even though I have money to burn.
I can't help but feel frustrated by how painfully close to awesome the Nokia Maemo/N800 is. Not including a cell chip and keeping a few lines of random code secret moves it from perfect to *bleh*. The prorietary code should be possible to replace, but it such a completely pointless thing to do that it makes me distrustful regarding the cluefulness of the people at the top, and quite frankly, forcing the community to jump through those kinds of hoops is exactly the kind of thing that makes a budding community ask itself why should I bother?
