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.

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

You're an old-fashioned Unix guy and think multi-user is unnecessary bloat, and that it has any impact whatsoever on speed? Somehow I don't believe you.

I think that adding multi-user support to a mobile OS is not a priority at all.

Android developers should focus on performance. iOS is way ahead in this particular matter, It feels faster even using slower hardware.
