Next release - ideas wanted

Another release will be out soon. We are considering changing the content and layout of the main menu and would like advice from you users. What information you would like to see when the menu first appears? As you know, it now shows the amount of free ram, “leJOS” and the battery voltage in the top line .
Other data that might be interesting is Bluetooth status (in the Bluetooth Menu) and free flash (now in the System menu). Also, the name of the brick could be displayed.
Remember, we only have 16 characters per line but we could use more than 1 line.
The brick name can be 16 characters long. (How long are actual names? I only use 4 characters myself ). Free ram requires 5 characters, free flash 6 if you display all the digits; Bluetooth status could be binary.

Please contribute your ideas for both content and layout.

Thanks,
Roger

Unfortunately, it is only possible to pick one option on the poll.
So of if there is more than one thing you want to see, please post a reply with your wish list in order.

If you can mix graphics (icons) and text, you could have it all!
