Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

Hey! Let's begin to ask for stupid and unnecessary features on mobile OSes too!! Yeah!!

Ruining PCs and Mac was not enough! We want more shit! xD

IMHO Android guys have to improve the performance of their OS on tablets... even my iPad 1 feels faster and snappier than many 2012 Android tablets.

Multi-user support is hardly a stupid or unnecessary feature, though; many families only buy one tablet that is shared between all the residents, but since there is no proper multi-user support when one makes a change to something it applies to all the aforementioned residents. Similarly, many corporations are forced to supply each and every employee with a tablet instead of allowing them to share one.

Looking at your comment and the ignorance displayed I'm gonna go on a limb here and just assume you're trying to troll, or you're just being blinded by rose-tinted glasses. Either way your credibility is rather low.

Well, I think that keeping it simple and fast is way more important than adding dubious features. I'm an old fashioned unix guy you know.

I used an Asus Transformer and I felt it pretty slow compared to my crappy iPad 1. The Asus has 3x or 4x more power than my iPad... It should fly... but It doesn't.

And I know that saying anything against Android in OSnews decreases my credibility and turns me into a "troll", but I don't care, I'm not a politician. xD
