First boot can be quite slow - debian generates ssh host keys in background 
and QtMoko is also indexing media files for the first time.

You can edit the theme - or create new one. It's quite easy - look at 
/opt/qtmoko/etc themes.

You can also edit /opt/qtmoko/qpe.env and change QTOPIA_PHONE=AT to 
QTOPIA_PHONE=Dummy This will replace the phone stack with dummy

Hmm interesting, we need good pulseaudio configuration for next release. Maybe

You can edit the theme. It should be possible to have different icon set with 
smaller icons.

Unfortunetely not yet. I'd like to have them too...

AFAIK not, but it should be possible to implement one.
