| I met lead Enlightenment developer Carsten Haitzler in the exhibition hall at 
| the Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE) this past weekend. Carsten told me 
| about prospects for the future of Enlightenment and shared with me some 
| details about his work at OpenMoko, a division of FIC which is developing  
| Linux-based open-source mobile phone handsets. He sees a big future for Linux 
| in the mobile and embedded space and notes that Enlightenment, with its small 
| memory footprint, is ideal for deployment on such devices.

| Last week Google announced Android, which is the newest open-source mobile

| Meanwhile, the open-source mobile platform known to many GNU/Linux users, 
| OpenMoko, hasn't kicked up nearly as much mainstream media attention. Both 
| OpenMoko and Android leverage the power of the Linux kernel and other 
| open-source projects to provide a free software platform for mobile devices.
