PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Lukas Mathis touts many webOS features that he wants other vendors to steal. All this stuff just makes me more sad I never got to try webOS on anything because nobody gives a rat's bum about The Netherlands. WebOS never came to market here. Especially its multitasking with cards looks so much more elegant than the horrible "multi"tasking implementations on Android and iOS. Hopeful note: Matias Duarte now heads the UX team for Android.

No, what I want is a secure OS.

Are you trying to tell me that the web browser on these devices is multi-user?

The web browser is nice enough to give me the option of saving passwords or not - why can't the rest of the os?

As for multi-profile (which is different from multi-user) it seems CM9 will have support for that since there appears to be a non-functional profile manager. Is that really too much to ask for whenit comes to storing credentials? Can't we employ some kind of key ring interface where I can hand my tablet to a friend without worrying about the, accessing all my privileged accounts?

Did we leave the modern era where security is increasingly important?
