You'll be waiting a long time I'm afraid. QWERTY phones aren't coming back.

I'm hanging on to mine (Desire Z). After replacing the battery (ahem) it looks like there are years more life left in it. Sure, I also have a slab-only phone and these days I carry it most of the time, but when I travel the Desire Z with full keyboard is generally more useful by being much faster at communcating.

Why does the Linux Foundation force its website visitors to submit a form before they can read this report?

The LInux Foundation is pretty much out of touch with the community, it is basically just a self appointed manager circle jerk. Not understanding basic open source etiquette is a clear demonstration of that.

...we can all believe that the 31.6 billion dollars his foundation has GRANTED since inception internationally is not much of a personal sacrifice in relative terms...

You're a bit confused. That is somewhat close to the amount the foundation was _endowed_ with, but actual grants are not remotely close to that. Skeptics point out that the foundation smells like a gigantic tax dodge... the money remains under Bill Gates' control with not a cent of tax paid on it.
