It seems the project can use all extra hands and support. For instance, their site could perhaps present important facts and additional selling points better. For me, the adapted UI by Kwame is attractive, as is the basic possibility to install other roms of choice.

>> To find an interview (in English) with initiator Bas van Abel visit the site of blip.tv/openSUSEtv
