Like many smartphones before it, the Droid has been rooted so that owners of the Android 2.0-based smartphone can install multitouch support (including pinch-to-zoom gestures), enhanced themes and other previously forbidden goodies."

The N900 is highly open too, from a developer standpoint but I guess it's not really as mainstream as the Palm devices. I hope to see them both successful. I like that Android is reasonable open and reasonably powerful but I'm disappointing that it's so far off normal Linux standards (such as they are).
