What's wrong with choice? The real inescapable problem with the TouchPad is the anemic state of the market. There just aren't many apps built for the tablet; the ones that are aren't very good. I agree, webOS is fantastic--especially the multitasking--but beyond that, it's not capable of doing much more than browsing the web using an incredible rudimentary browser.

Best of all they don't take donations, like some questionable-at-best teams that quickly assembled to port Android in the wake of the fire-sale frenzy. They urge donating to the EFF instead. CyanogenMod are a classy team.

Also, it should be noted that this build would qualify as being in the earliest of alpha stages.

The constant barrage of updates for Firefox is frustrating to say the least. Having to go through the installer every month and have your extensions checked for compatibility and consistently get disabled... it's just not worth it. I switched to Chrome and have progressed through 8 whole versions without ever noticing and without ever having my extensions break. It's divine, and how all software upgrades should be done (in a perfect world).
