First Thanks goes to my beloved wife Leo, without her patience and support I couldn't ever make this happen! Thanks goes to the Stella development team for this awesome emulator! And Thanks to the webos-internals team for their hard work on WIDK!

The Stella emulator plays all ROM files for Atari 2600, in fact I haven't found one which doesn't work yet.

Current Bugs/Problems: - Stella crashes if you switch from portrait mode (the default) to landscape mode. Open bug reported to stella maintainer.

- taking screenshots with the palm (orange+@+p) produces empty images

- if you put stella into the background, the command menu appears

- switching to landscape view from stella freezes the app (it works from commandline though)
