that would be a good present.
We still have so much work to do, not just in the engine, but in developing "skins", which are happening alongside the development of the engine. The amount of functionality which much be dealt with is quite monstrous, and this is being done by a single lead programmer, me as a guide, and a group of volunteers testing and building skins (also me in this case, I am writing the QML for the skin that will be used on the Nokia N9/N950 Harmattan based phone.)
If you want to help, check out the code, build it, use it, experiment with qml, make new stuff, talk to us in #linuxmce-devel; all of the above.
In the mean time, here are some vids from me, showing the harmattan skin I am developing, to tide over:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wIPHlOrO1Yhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3eaD0N0GMEhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Pfd69CvgUYhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5B5F3FfDpuU
