We came across this bug ticket:
Specifically, the first 6 icons from the left should be (in order):
Chat, Browse, Write, Record, Paint, TamtamJam?
Turtle Art, eToys, Pippy, Calculator, Measure, TamTamEdit?, SynthLab?, Memorize, Blockparty, and Connect4.
It appears to me that this ordering puts higher emphasis on "simple
and easy" things and less emphasis on things that require "creativity
and hard fun" (excluding games). Is this observation correct?
If so, it may send a wrong message to the rest of world. Many
potential cuostomer contries have cellphones and PCs already, and
adults and youth are chatting and browsing and taking notes (and
playing games) with them. Are we trying to compete in such
"cellphone" culture domain?
I'd say, cellphones and PCs they already have can take care of
simple stuff, so our priority (or our message) should be more on the
"hard fun" items.
What do you think?
