Heheh!
So, I wanna do some questions to the community for making this to be better.

Thanks for your replies, guys!

Great work!

1. What do you expect from this release?
A perfectly functional Ubuntu Maverick. Support for sudo, apt-get and such tings. I have never used webtop so I don't know what to expect. But a working Ubuntu as close as possible to the desktop edition would be a dream.

2. What are the programs you want to find on it?
Except from the default (maybe remove some unnecessary if space is needed, for example evolution (I think most android users use gmail) and gimp if it was still included in 10.10) I just want programs needed for correct function.

3. What do you want to be able to do?
Everything

Just a thought. Was 10.10 released for ARM?
Wondering if there are repositories available...

And why 10.10 and not 11.10? Is webtop using the same kernel as Android so we can't compile a newer one?

Im not exactly sure what I expect, I had a Bionic for 2 weeks prior to the RAZR, and its webtop mod basically made the Bionic a mouse and HDMI out to a tv a computer. Thats all I want, Santa.

You, good sir, have made my day!

1. What do you expect from this release?
I'd love the webtop be to much quicker. I think if you could introduce swap space, the speed could be increased greatly. I know there was a patch for that on the Bionic, so it would be excellent to see that on here to ensure it performs well.

2. What are the programs you want to find on it?
Is Mobile View possible? Also, I'd like to be able to compile code... can you maybe get Eclipse or Netbeans? Additionally, OpenOffice would be nice.

3. What do you want to be able to do?
I'm using my webtop primarily for taking notes in class, but I would absolutely love to have the ability to compile code so I can work on assignments on-the-go.

THANK YOU!!!

I'm installing Evolution and OpenOffice. I'll possibly install GIMP, too, but Eclipse and Netbeans are really big, so if anyone needs it, apt-get will work so you'll be able to install it on your own.

Anyway, please don't request big things, it should be a base system. Its size now (with Evolution) is 2GB. I expect it to grow to 2.5GB with OpenOffice.

How does it seem to be performing so far? Compared to the lapdock OS already installed?

This must be something different than what was out for the Bionic. That was just a couple megs and basically allowed webtop over HDMI without any adapters.

What you're referring to was a modification to Motorola's APKs for allowing WebTop over HDMI. This is a chroot into full Ubuntu Maverick through WebTop.
