23:43 morrildl more accurately the UI as designed for the G1 does not work on the Sooner.
23:43 plusminus_ or did you put it to a private showcase ?
23:43 benley I've got a sooner in a box somewhere.
23:43 morrildl plusminus_: I don't know what happened to them, actually
23:43 plusminus_ It would be so geekish to have one ^^
23:43 plusminus_ hm ok
23:43 benley afaik they remain in the hands of whoever had them when the software left them behind.
23:45 plusminus_ I'd buy one, even if just m3 works on it ^^
23:45 benley heh. you can even run m4 :)
23:46 plusminus_ m4 was never public ... :(
23:46 plusminus_ did it have the same UI ?
23:46 morrildl plusminus_: not really
23:47 morrildl imagine a UI halfway between M3 and M5 and you have M4 :)
23:47 plusminus_ so really sth between m3 and m5
23:47 benley m4 had the "home sweet home" ui
23:47 plusminus_ ^^
23:47 benley (I think)
23:47 plusminus_ I'd love to see a screenshot of that
23:47 morrildl benley: home sweet home is the M5 Home
23:47 benley oh, hm
23:47 morrildl plusminus_: no you wouldn't
23:47 plusminus_ lol
23:47 morrildl there are reasons why M4 was never public :)
23:47 morrildl that's all I'm going to say
