thanks for the links, but Android on a touchpad is.... not my intention.I like the Touchpad not because of the HW, but the SW.
And as much as I appreciate the luneOS efforts, all that I read about it and what the devs say themselves about the system, its not yet intended for endusers. I could probably deal with the glitches, my wife doesn't.
I work in Produkt Management and what I see in this development path is, that it mainly focuses on technical and engineering Advancement, as those people active in the Community are mainly in it for those fields of expertise. Be it, because its part of the profession or at least of high intrest. Because of the more and more complicated strategies to keep WebOS devices working this is kind of a sorting out “the normal users“ who used the devices because it was so easy and effective and seamless.
What we saw and see over the past months and years, is the shrinking of an active user base which burns down to a community of developers who are the only ones who use their developed systems. The view gets narrowed, technical details become more relevant than gaining usefulness. Updating a library or subsystem to the most recent Version becomes more relevant, than gaining functionality.
That's the reason why I asked for a Browser App in the first place. Sure I celebrated the development start of luneOs and I hoped it could replace WebOs soon, including more modern SW and compatibility. But it didn't happen fast enough and still isn't finished.
You have to show those, not included in development, those with lower engagement, with daily needs, a path worth following, while working on your vision.
Thats why I would be willing to pay a few hundred Dollars, to get a fresh paved path I would be able to keep track on until the vision is finished, a Browser App for WebOs 3.x at least.
And I'm sure there are a view more out there who would stay with us on that track a little longer, perhaps even long enough to be initial Users of a followup sytem or OS, if such a thing existed.
I don't want to be misunderstood, the devs, webosinternals, the lunos team, all do a wonderful job and I am thankful for all they have done and do!
I just wanted to explain why I think a modern up-to-date Browser experience has to come the sytem and platform, that we all know and love and use: WebOS.
PS: I don't want to sound rude, but please stay on topic, when replying.
