With it being open I would have loved to have seen them modularize the 
entirety of it (including top/bottom bars. Maybe I want to move the menu 
to the bottom and remove the triple-box all-together? I'd like to see 
how to remove the bottom bar and use the extra space for everyday uses. 
Also illume-config doesn't allow me to set terminal keyboard as the 
default for texts so if the keyboard crashes (I'm using FDOM which is 
modified 2008.X) then it goes back to default instead of terminal.
