First of all, why didn't they include the ability to read or send messages to/from accounts other than Gmail, like Gmail currently lets you do now? Second, how is Inbox able to fill in blank avatars from business email addresses with company logos? Is it getting help from Chrome or something? Nice feature though, just wonder how it works.

MATE is a simple, neat destop that ... "just works". I'm just old fashoined and don't need a fancy UI.

Using Xubuntu here for that same reason. Not to mention the fact that I have a lesser machine (an eMachines EL1358G) with not quite enough RAM to run full-on Ubuntu. Canonical seems to have done some nice things with its spin of XFCE used here.

The Ouya does that better at lower cost, no soft-mod required.

Not to mention the availability of non-game apps on the device. Does TuneIn ring a bell? Not sure if the Ouya has the right video innards, but it could probably run Netflix or Hulu and become yet another Roku competitor.
