The Droid X is the greatest phone in the history of ever. Except that whole encrypted-bootloader thing but you can't have it all, right?
Seriously, I had no interest in touch screens. Avoided them at any cost; the Blackberry keyboard was as good as it was ever going to get. The Droid X changed my thinking on that. If that doesn't say it all nothing will.
I have a Linux background so maybe I can be of some help some time. I posted my fix for my DX WiFi before I posted my intro; just seemed more important.
