Anybody here had any experience with the Optimus Three?

I got one of these a couple of weeks ago, as a taster to see how hard it
would be to get it working with Linux.

I downloaded a utility from and have had some limited success...

But the project seems to be asleep (last modified 13:46, 2 July 2007)

According tho the Optimus Project pages on LiveJournal, the Maximus is
going to be delayed because of a firmware development for the
microcontroller (Philips LPC2888).

Any ideas about this?
