Ok, now that WebOS is open-sourced, what features do we want?

How about:
1. Improved boot time/optimization?
2. JVM (Opera, Android, etc.)
3. Re-add support for Classic? Is the ROM.bin file allowed?
4. Bring back TABS!

I second bluetooth file transfer. Rather silly that it's missing.
A virtual keyboard that comes standard, and doesn't have to be patched in.
IR back in, so I can use it as a remote control.

The Dalvik should be priority IMO, then I'd remove Android from my Touchpad.

for me personally i would like to see:

firefox (maybe this could be used Mozilla Developing Open Web Mobile OS )

more flexibility with syncing bluetooth devices (like gamepads)
- then maybe someone will make some decent emulators :P

VLC (not too impressed with kalemsoft player)

oh and what fresh said ^

OK, for a serious response this time? Dalvik.

1. I can't wait to see what the community can do to clean up the base code.

2. Getting it working on some new phone hardware. I can't wait to replace an andrioid or windows mobile phone with WebOS.

voice commands, so I can tell my phone to play music while in the car.

and release the Pre3 to all. But only through HP store since at&t probably won't sell them.

Yes, I think there's a lot of code inefficiences in webos 2/3 that @webosinternals group can optimize and make our touchpads, and phones really fly and do cool things. I think open sourcing it is really going to help @webosinternals. Imagine if preware *IS* integrated as part of the OS?

I second that Dalvik is FIRST priority. When Android apps run on WebOS, thats when REAL traction comes. People, developers and tweakers alike, will come to WebOS with a more open mind and heart.

Also, did somebody really say get rid of cards? Is that a joke? Cards is the entire OS.

I want a developer API that allows me to have the user grant permissions to my applications to be able to do various things that are just not allowed at the moment:

Adjust volume
Blank or Unblank or Dim display
Access the contacts database
Access the call log database
Access other databases as necessary
Probably lots of other things that I haven't thought of

I want to be able to get the Download Manager to download from secure websites, using the proper access tokens.

I want the DownloadManager to not cause a massive hitch in the OS every time it reports progress back to the application that started the download (especially noticeable if you have 2 large file DLs at once, either via App Catalog or via some other app that can download stuff, such as my upcoming Subsonic Media Streamer app)

I want to be able to not only detect presses of the volume buttons in my app (i can already do this), but also have it -not- adjust the system volume at the same time (or do so, if I wish).

These are my immediate needs for the apps I have in progress.
