I'd love to have ETHO [the HCI, not just the language] on an ARM system.
`wily` based on ETHO runs an rPi. Unfortunately they've reversed the
left/right mouse-scrolling direction, which messes our reflexes.
Is the abusive WinTel monopoly coming to an end?
OTOH see this kiddie: FB/twitter attitude:---
] Android 2.3.5 WTFF
] 2.3.5 launched in July 2011 - 2.5 years ago.
] Why launch a new product with an out of date OS?
] No Thanks.
When I've got a difficult task that needs 6 textFrames visible together,
plus an extra dimension of coloring-related-parts, I must call on ETHO
[linux based these days for me]. Where ETHO is 20 years old, today's
market sees July 2011 as out-of-date!
BTW, did you read about the whole-towns of speculation houses in China?
They are all unoccupied, because they would lose their speculation-value
once they've been 'used'.
