In reply to nx and spellinn: I entirely agree. The GUI and overall operation of RO is my major reason for using it and it's OK. I would rather see some new capability added to the OS.

Neil's suggestion of the filing system is a good one. If that's too "under the bonnet" then something from the Merlin list perhaps? I would like to be able to connect a webcam and video-conference for example - or just VoIP. Or some Replay improvements, or PTP natively to digital cameras perhaps. Something that would fill gaps in the basic OS functionality.

Though some of these things may sound too ambitious, a lot of the stacks are out there in the freeware world (and look what one guy has achieved with a little thing called Firefox!).
