EDIT: here is one of the attempt

xactly.

cuz we needa fix a severe problem I found: you cannot install more than roughly 10 typefaces ! the settings.apk FCs when too many fonts, i.e. 20 , are installed.

so the videocore must render em fonts without interference from settings.apk

Hi guys! Only a suggestion.
Everything sounds beautiful.
Please make a new thread for the "sgy turnng to linux" .
That would be awesome.
