But write them from scratch or port native linux apps makes the
software better. ;) SCNR
I see that there are billions of java midlets with nice GUI and closed
code. And I see that the mass market like to use them.
My point is that we have the chance here to do it _right_.
In my eyes Java midlets are only a workaround while you can't write
native applications for your phone.
Don't get me wrong, I _know_ somebody will make a JavaVM available for
OpenMoko and I _know_ that people will run there midlets on it. That's
fine with me.
But personally unhappy with the performance, code quality and closed
source of the java midlets I've seen.
