Here is my list of complaints from that evaluation, which was obviously
using a 600-series OS version.
- not traditional desktop metaphor
- no tabbed browsing
- flaky wireless
- some bad machines: difficulty turning on and peeling mousepad.
- flaky mouse
- has a mouse instead of mouse-alternatives (?)
- popup menus too slow
- activity startup too slow
- see address in browser bar should be easier (fixed)
- hard to save to USB. *Should be accessible from within an activity.*
- scroll bars too small, especially for subsidiary panes (interesting
issue for grab key, BTW)
I may have missed a few, but I think that most of these are either already
the focus of effort (and progress) or have been decided against by many
here. The one I bolded is I think a useful one: *why not have a "keep to
USB" and "keep to SD" option in the keep dropdown menu in the activity
