definitely not open then qi-hardware ben nanonote. Ben Nanonote simply, 
open and active now you can always get answer in qi-hardware list or 
IRC  #qi-hardware

ben nanonote have committed some code to you can find the

OpenMoko have canceled develop FreeRunner. the other device WikiReader 
is not base on GNU/Linux system.
