Hopefully they'll at least have a dev mode. Unless something has changed, you have to root your device and manually enable sideloading on the Nook Color to test you apps, even if you are an accepted developer.

Can't say I really care for that at all. It's not 2003 any more. Modern devices have the horsepower to rerender pages if needed. I hope there's a way to turn that off. I really don't want Amazon mucking around with my web browsing.

They should go back to a freely downloadable, but unsupported version. Compared to enterprise level support from other vendors(Unix, Windows, etc) I don't think their pricing is that bad, but an easily accessible free version with no support would alleviate the headaches of waiting for CentOS and others to keep up. Fedora is nice, but it's too far removed from the main Red Hat release and can be unstable.
