    Just give me a snappy interface, graphics that visually match or slightly exceed current gen stuff and a battery life that can handle 12 hours idle and 3 hours of talk on 1 charge.
    I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

However, speed of software is not a function of the size of the code but rather of the algorithms used. Hence, if Palm were to make no further changes to any 1.x code while adding new features for 2.x, then any features carried over from 1.x will perform exactly the same on 2.x.

    On the other hand, if you simply mean that in 2.x there will be a whole lot more code to optimize (and Palm hasn't even improved the existing 1.x code by leaps and bounds), then I completely agree.
    It's mostly the latter although new functionality has the potential to add bloat to the OS and core programs. For example, if new features are added to the calendar, email, search, synergy, phone, internet browser, et al, it will make each of those functions more software intense. Couple that code growth with all the new things being speculated on these boards into 2.0 'by the end of the year," and there probably won't be a lot of time for optimizing all that new code for improved performance.

    I can't think of an operating system release in the past decade that this hasn't been a factor (phone, PDA, or computer). It's as predictable as Moore's Law when you get down to it.
