If somebody speaks in this way about the man who single-handedly invented the whole ecosystem we call "Linux" today, I doubt he has his own... oh, who cares.

Naw, I just wanted to take a shot at using him as my human megaphone for inclusion of POCSAG paging in proposed FOSS phones. Sadly despite him being the famous no-phone guy nobody has taken up that challenge.
We just happen to share a desire for hardware and software which works for us not some corporation or some state's spy agency.

"Single-handedly" is a bit strong. But even if if I accepted that claim, inventing something and dictating to you what to think are very different things. You can think high of a person for one and low for the other and you can do both at the same time. There is no contradiction.

Besides, someone who blindly follows one god and takes every word falling from his holy mouth for a gospel has no right to look down on others who do the same, but happen to choose a different god ("Apple sheeple" comes to mind; not that you said that but many in this forum did).

There's nothing wrong with clever people who are willing to share their ideas and exlain them to others. There's everything wrong with those who refuse to listen, to learn and who call new information "dictating to you what to think".

I wish the Neo900 release announcement was around the corner so we could quickly change topic and get back to the device.

[Edit] I'm not usually one to call off-topic and be boring about it, I like off-topic almost all the time, it is often very enriching. However here it's just a little fight over some silly argument after someone just mentioned one famous guy's opinion, to illustrate something about the Neo900. He didn't say that guy is his god or mentor, nor that he needs or follows his opinions.

This topic is mainly made of little fights among posters or big fights against the Neo900 project maintainers. While it is true that we are all frustrated and concerned about how relevant will be the device if/when it's out, there is no doubt those guys have been hard at work and have not counted their paid hours (otherwise it would be over already), it doesn't look so fair to just feed the topic with this kind of vibrations. (Now I guess I managed to be really boring, but hey. :>)

I generally agree, but:

How do you know without getting updates from the team? They could have stopped or cut down hours due to lack of money or other factors. Surely there's no cash left after all these years.
