I am using a Nokia N900 which runs Maemo 5. I also have a Samsung Galaxy Tab which runs a custom rom from the XDA dev forums.
There are plenty of open source choices for mobile devices now. Work is a breeze when your router, phone, tablet, server and computers run Linux.
I was thinking of getting a PS3 for Linux since they just price dropped!

Well I have pretty much given up on correcting the problem. The eraser trick worked for a short while but it came back. The only sure way to deal with it seems to be to use the older 9700 keypad membrane and I'm not ready to shell out any more money on a phone that cost an arm and leg to begin with.

I typed 4 sentences and no stutter... but as we know, this means nothing.
Mine is being used by mom, she types slow and sends less than 250 messages a month. With such little use the phone never stutters so I will not be able to give any feedback.
Going to switch (my entire family) to an Android device with a good camera in an attempt to consolidate as many devices as possible. Huge screen, built in SIP stack, video calling, kernel development, file system options, Linux chroot (run a desktop environment)... the options are endless. I have my Galaxy Tab syncing via SSH over the internet to my Linux desktop (ex. pictures, music/video library, documents, Firefox and passwords).

discotech: I totally understand. I meant let's not get our hopes up, again.
I posted a link to the article I wrote on how to sync Android via SSH but it was removed by a mod.

There isn't even a single ad on the site I linked to, which makes it even more confusing. I am not about to sit here and argue about that...
The same applies to this problem. We got what we wanted, a solution, but it was very slow and frustrating. A single month of enjoyment from a $500 unlocked phone added to that frustration. Now it is fixed, but their new line up is out, and I still feel this phone was a rip off.
In conclusion, the solution is incomplete. A fair compromise could be to exchange our handsets for the current equivalent model. We get the phone we paid for (lose extra spent on unnecessary repairs) and RIM receives customer loyalty.
