Hank, I want to thank you for stimulating such a great discussion. I think I have an understanding of where your trying to go with this and I understand that having such a free and democratic process of creating an UI for a mobile platform would be very difficult. However, looking at other

Ough! I just can't imagine how to use emacs with this new iphone concept. While this new concept is a fine thing for a phone, I'd like to be able to do _real_ work with it. I'm a developer, so my main tool is emacs, but there are more tasks (e.g. email/mail) where a kbd would be usefull. With

There was another thread on launching apps in ASU not too long ago. I think it was determined that by default Illume is restricted to only certain categories by the /etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu file. Some applications .desktop files such as openmoko-terminal2's do not include any of the

You need to take into account that this is just a milestone release, a snapshot of the current progress of the ASU development. It is *NOT* a final release in any way, shape or form. If you read the announcement by William Lai he lists: - A stable and working phone stack realized by using
