I use 64 bit Windows and Linux(Fedora 13) on VMware.
I am familiar with both OS and wonder which is better for application
I am also going to try compiling device driver/kernel on Linux.
Currently I have only installed SDK only on Windows.
In this case which OS will be preferable?

Please answer.

1. [WTA] Apps balik lagi abis ganti ROM?

Dear RR,

niubi numpang nanya yaq..biasa nya wa abis ganti ROM, coba cek ke market
untuk mulai install bbrp apps, kok liat di bagian My Apps, dah otomatis bbrp
apps yg wa pake di ROM sebelum nya udah otomatis di donlot yaq? akibatnya,
banyak apps yang sebelum nya udah wa uninstall dan ga kepake, otomatis di
donlot lagi dan dire-install lagi..

wa sih pikirnya ini ada hubungan nya dengan back up data ke account utama
google wa (yg dimasukkan pertama kali pas baru ganti ROM)..ada cara untuk
meremove apps itu dari account wa ga ya?

makasih sebelum nya untuk ingpoh nya, rr..


2. Use standard system browser for OAuth / Keep browser out of history

I want use system browser for Twitter/Foursquare OAuth authorization.
I think that this is safer then open browser in Webview directly in my
app. System browser also can remember user password and he can't enter
it again and again.

My idea is open the browser via standard intent

Intent browserIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW,

And via call back URL myApp://twitter call back my app activity.
Better will be call some special URL which Android will handle like
close browser or goto back to the application which opened it.

But big problem is that this work only if browser was not running
before. If browser is running already it keep in history and user
after OAuth authorization stay in the browser instead of my app.

I think that this is caused because browser is running in different
task and FLAG_ACTIVITY_NO_HISTORY works only for activities in one

But how to solve it. I think that this is very common problem.
Is only way to use internal Webview? :-(
