Talk:Lessons Learned

Numbers 1 and 4 are to me the gravest mistakes OM did, and the reason why I have a bad device in my pocket everyday (a freerunner). The HW design must be rock-solid, and it must be openly supported - by the silicon vendors and by the community - the specs must be open. The glamo fiasco should never take place again. Please insist in a solid design+kernel+drivers. Costumers can’t enjoy an UI full of bling if the framebuffer data gets occasionally written to the sdcard or the system freezes when the card bus is contended or the GPRS connection drops if the WiFi or GPS is used. If the device doesn’t deliver on it’s HW capacities, you’re shortchanging your customers and they make you pay for it. And it’s all deeply sad. ~~ Vasco Nevoa, September 2, 2009 at 14:18

“Please insist in a solid design+kernel+drivers” - thanks for supporting us on this. We do focus on exactly these areas to make sure we do not repeat mistakes of the past. ~~ vegyraupe, September 2, 2009 at 14:33

I think that failing to follow 5, 6 and 9 leads to an inevitable failure for any enterprise. ~~ Luis Carvajal, August 25, 2009 at 12:52

The biggest mistakes by Openmoko were #7and #8. They wasted too much time and effort on userland and UI. There are things you should leave to the community, and things you shouldn’t. ~~ Atilla Filiz, July 31, 2009 at 08:28
