PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Two weeks ago, as I was busy finding out in Vegas that double-shot frozen cocktails are a really stupid idea, a small Finnish startup unveiled their mobile operating system: Jolla unveiled Sailfish. With a strong focus on the Chinese market, the company is aiming to offer serious competition to Android's dominance of the smartphone market.

Comes with a "gestures" manual?

It would be wonderful if, for once, the developers of a mobile OS released a manual for the OS. Especially once that includes *all* of the different gestures that can be used.

I am so sick of "intuitive" and "discoverable" mobile OSes that don't include manuals, online help, online tips, etc expecting you to "just know" all the different ways to flick, press, rotate, pinch things with all 1-5 finger multi-touch variations of each.
