Default Ubuntu-MID on Aigo (COmpal JAX-10) Worth promoting?

You might have seen a few reviews on the Aigo MID recently on the net. Pocketables published one today, I have one for testing (Mobilx will be promoting and selling them in the EU) and if you've got an hour to kill, we did a live session with it the other day and recorded the Ustream.

General opinion is that the software stack, based on Midinux, isnt that refined. The apps are rather poor and there's an Asian focus on some of the the features.
The worst thing is that although many of the fans/hackers are doing a great job on working out workarounds and enhancements, they cant feed back into Midinux because for our English speaking community, its impossible to communicate efficiently.

I'm about to highlight the release of Ubuntu-UMPC and Ubuntu-MID in an article and will take the chance to update people with an overview of the options out there but what i'd like to do is to say to potential Aigo (and Benq S6 and SFR Mi PC) owner/developers ' take the latest Ubuntu-MID and lets work with that. '

But...is Ubuntu-MID at a stage where an Aigo owner could install it and be confident that at least Wifi, BT stack and a decent browser was available. The last time I tried it (on a Gigabyte version of the Jax-10 some months ago) it wasnt too enjoyable.

Maybe someone could give some feedback so that I can round-up some of this valuable community resource and stear it to a channel that will not only be easier to communicate with, but is likely to feed quality changes down into a release that everyone can benefit from.

Looking forward to some help on this.
