Openmoko gives developers a choice of ever-popular Debian, community-driven FDOM, QT by Trolltech (recently acquired by Nokia) and Android operating systems for their mobile applications, proving that the FreeRunner is the hardware of choice for developers focused on building and maintaining distributions. Since successful launch of the Openmoko FreeRunner July 2008, the company has seen expanding hardware deployment in medical, industrial and military markets. Over the past six months, FreeRunners have been sold to over 40 universities and the company has engaged in ongoing projects with the Taiwan Ministry of Education.
