This seems lika a very very good decision,

A core develop/engineering team focus to deliver a rubust platform,

User applications then is up to all others to develop...

Hello, boys and girls,
This is your old pal Stinky Wizzleteats
This is a song about a whale,
No! This is a song about being happy!
That's right! It's the Happy Happy Joy Joy song!

Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy Joy!

I don't think you're happy enough,
That's right! I'll teach you to be happy!
I'll teach your grandmother to suck eggs!
Now, boys and girls, let's try it again.

Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy Joy!

If'n you ain't the granddaddy of all liars!
Think of the little critters of nature...
They don't know that they're ugly!
That's very funny!
A fly marrying a bumblebee!
I told you I'd shoot! But you didn't believe me!
Why didn't you believe me?

Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Joy Joy
Happy Happy Happy Happy
Happy Happy Happy Happy
Happy Happy Joy Joy Joy!

 Hi!

 Just want to make sure everyone knows that the weekly engineering news
 has been released again, see
 http://lists.openmoko.org/nabble.html#nabble-td1336450|a1336450

 I want to highlight this:
 We decided to focus our
 engineering on just the basics, even less eye candy: Robust kernel,
 fast boot time, basic telephony with great audio quality, powerful
 configuration from the command line, hardware quality. That's it.
 We will stop working on our Installer, Locations, Diversity and
 Settings applications. We will get back to all this when the rest is
 rock solid, but now is not the time. Feel free to pickup any of these
 projects in the meantime

 I suppose this is generally a good thing to let the community do what
 it can do (as long as community has the tools and so on to do it) and
 Openmoko focus on the core stuff.

 The day I see my Neo booting in 5 seconds or less with a rock-solid

This is the best thing I have read about Openmoko development since a long
time : Openmoko Inc. focusing on parts where money has real value : core
stuff, which needs high qualifications and good coders.

Week-end coders will then build their toy on the great base, seemingly
missing up to now.

Real good news for me !

It's deffinitly good news - missing/buggy user level apps can be
written/fixed by community quickly and easy on their own hand, but
stable core must be provided by Openmoko stuff (of course with help
from community ;D) I'm waiting for fix to the glamo-mci problem with
some sd card :)
