why should "we" compete with apple in this respect?
i never understood the hype for 3d desktop thingumabob (compiz/aigle or
whatever it is called now), animated icons or that stuff -- it usually
only eats cpu and memory w/o offering real benefits, it's just eye candy.
while i don't underestimate the importance of those gimmicks in marketing
i still like to think the users targetd by the openmoko are above this
tinsel, glitz and glass beads ;-)
imho the palm os ui has still its merits and while improvable its far
better then f ex windows ce -- i had no chance to check iphone's way of
navigation, but i am convinced, if there is any good somebody will
implement somthing sismilar for us :-)
