To be fair, I did get the device for free as well, mostly in order to
work on MeeGo stuff which I did. Anyway, it's good not to have such a
potential developer device mostly unused. I would have originally
donated it to a local MeeGo device program for developers, but they
already had a couple of free N900:s in their inventory so I thought
I'd turn towards the Debian community. Work done in Debian tends to
help everyone as well...
