I suppose it depends on how pissed off a person is with behavior hidden in what is supposed to be a very readable language.
Flip a coin or pick a side - positive feature or negative feature to not need Java in the system.

My position on Android is about the same -
Sure, I could port the drivers - but why?
I can't think of any reason why I would want Android on my Kindles.

Just no interest in that sort of project here.

I am already running ubuntu directly.

Hopefully I will have more time to try again tomorrow.

Ah, ok... that wasn't clear to me. Then try this: run "sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog" in a terminal, then plug in the Kindle. There should be at least *something* happening - post that something here.
