Just came up with a REALLY stupid (or cool) idea!
This was prompted by the "why do storm games suck" thread. I got to thinking. The Storm's hardware is capable of playing games; the OS isn't. So perhaps the Storm should contain a dual-boot OS with a "game mode". This "game mode" could be a lightweight linux-based OS with an OpenGL API and could use the microSD card for game storage (a high speed card would need to be used for good load times); normal BB mode would boot into the normal Storm OS. A hotkey could be used at boot time to select the "game" mode (hold down BB key while device starts up, for example).
Now, this is just wishful thinking on my part; but it COULD be done. It would allow iPhone-level gaming without compromising the BB OS itself.
