I did.

I had an Openmoko from 2008 until 2011. It looked like already outdated
by then, and I missed many calls but struggled to keep it barely
working. I had to send it in germany, then, for a few weeks to fix a
hardware bug, and bought a cheap Adndroid 2 Huawei phone for the
interim. When I received my patched Openmoko I was used to Android and
having a working phone. I never could switch back to my Openmoko which
has been collecting dust in a drawer since then.
I've been following the tinkerphone mailing list all this time and was
quite disappointed about the complex soldering problems you've experienced.
When I heard about the Librem 5 project I just felt more confident in
their capacity to overcome these difficulties, because of their
experience with notebooks.

Anyway, thank Nikolaus for your tireless work toward a free phone. What
you've done so far is awesome.
