[quote name='Jagannath;17995]You bought a copy of Docs2go? Why?It comes in the original firmware for free' date=' all you needed to do was extract the apk's and install them.[/QUOTE'] Given the way software is treated in China, you can't be sure Documents 2 Go wasn't pirated onto the M001. legal or not, it doesn't hurt to buy a copy. Then the people who wrote it get more money and put more work into developing the product. I've bought two copies. one for each device I had at the time. It's a very useful app if you need to work with MS Office 2007 or earlier.I mainly use linux because I've been orphaned too many times by closed source software companies who disappear after taking my money and their app are left either unsupported or merged into some other product I don't want anyway. With Linux, that isn't the end of the story. Old open source apps that are good can be revised and re-written by anyone who wants to after the original developers move on to other things. That is why I grabbed Android with both hands when it came out. But sometimes you need to talk to the closed-source world and its by-products.....so Docs 2 Go does that for me on Android, like OpenOffice does it on Linux.

Every other bit of WIn32 shite I can live without. (Except Winamp, oh where art thou. Winamp + 100% FLAC-Encoded Library + Studio DSP Plugins + Quantum Electronics Power Amp + Leak Sandwich Monitors = Most beautiful thing you will ever hear)
