C_shekar - I think you need some investigation which kind of soft user needs.
So let us post our vision of required soft preinstalled in ROM.
as far as I understand we taking about freeware.
My List:

1. Touch flo (if there are any possibility)
2. Dict
3. Alreader light 2\Hali reader
4. Total Commander Mobile
5. TCMP
6. Pdf - viewer
7. WM5-storage
8. Some sort of timer.
9. ICQ application (qip for example)
10. Gsplayer
11. Rar mobile

I think the ROM should stay clean, so the user can decide what apps he wants to add.

I think one can only add the HTC home tab thingie!

Cheers

for what reason you need all amount of RAM ?
Are you know that without ram-disk device SLOW DOWN ??

But I`ve agree to save some extra mem by lowering page poll. (I think 16 mb will be ok )

No, just leave the pagepool at 32 as I think it's neccessary to keep the Rom goes fast. No more software should be added I hope 'cause users can add them in later on. Just all the important fixes and patches. And that's all. Anyone want to personalize the ROM can do that by creating an extendedRom in their SD, is it, so just try to keep the version pure (one of the best exapmle is buzz 3.33). But, the ROMs that personalized before by certain developers are appreciated as well.

I agree. The upgrade rom should be a clean one so a person can choose exactly what software they require and will use. We must also remember that we all use our PPC for different reasons so there will never be a rom with software we all want or need.
Touch Pro 2

Radio: 3.46.25.18
Rom: Cell Pro v 9.8
Protocol: 61.30t.25.26U

Tytn II (Kaiser)

Radio version: 1.65.14.06
Protocol Version: 25.81.40.02W
ROM Version: Dutty WM 6.1 19700 29/4/08

Smile Clean and Clear

Hello!!! Yes I think the WM6 should be clean version, if someone wants to install apps they can do so. The reason to keep the clean version is to make the device run faster.

Although there should be a clean version but also there should be a choice of software (seprately given). If need be people can install them on their Device.

Kind Regards

Jay

removing the extra applications will not give more storage
it will not give more memory
it will just mean that the rom part of ones flash is left more empty
