The OpenMoko project is a trailblazer and it could ride the wave of Linux
taking over consumer devices, which are gradually replacing the traditional
desktop (an increasing proportion of the time). OpenMoko has some big-brand
competitor, but it has the support of programmers. The early units sold out
fast due to unexpected demand, so many developers must be already hacking on
it (third-party enhancements).
