Better ARM default application choices

Registered by Paul Larson on 2009-11-02

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "UNE for ARM" for updated plans.

Because of issues such as cache size on ARM processors, some applications that are standard on x86 images do not perform as expected on ARM. Alternatives should be investigated to produce a more optimal set of default applications for ARM based releases.

Work Items:
Initial UNE seed changes: TODO
GNOME games refactored and split: TODO

[asac 24-11-09]: set to drafting; dyfet: please let me know if you want to merge this into the application choices one.
[asac 12-01-09]: alpha-2 target; music player, openoffice replacement, and mail handling will go to individual specs.
I believe this blueprint could potentially be merged with https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/mobile-arm-lucid-lightweightbrowser and I am also expressing an early interest in this one :). (DS)
[asac 02-12-09]: superseded by mobile-lucid-arm-une, and the specs for webservices (email, office) and media player; moved all dependencies to that new spec accordingly.
