I run CentOS at home and generally prefer rpm. But I couldn't care less if my next phone is based on Debian, RedHat or whatever. All distros have their strengths and weaknesses. Just gimme a real, full-stack, truly open mobile Linux distro!

Just need good open drivers and it would happen.

Give that a hardware keyboard and Debian... That'd be amazing!
You could pick ram, space etc. Nice!

And then he will remove Debian from the phones and install gNewSense instead... And then make us start waiting for a miraculous new kernel that will never come.

This _really is_ the biggest problem.

I spent little time deciding to buy my N800. But then when I started to hack it for real, and started finding all the limitations, I was very disappointed to find out how difficult it is to build new kernel versions for it. And just because of the proprietary bits on its design...

I didn't know of this very interesting project:

Debian of N900
http://elektranox.org/n900/index.html

This guy wants to implement exactly what I described in my rant. Thanks to Qwazik for referencing that in a recent post. I am going to try the thing - might be a step forward in the direction of liberty

An i386 phone with a full desktop OS sounds good, but made in a way that gave phone related tasks full priority even when some app goes for 100% cpu.

If I remind well, old Nokia Communicators (9000, 9110, maybe also the following ones) were said having two microprocessors, one for telephony one for pda. This wouldn't be bad in a modern gizmo, to be sure telephony functions don't get slowed by other activites, and also to be able to turn them on and off independently.
