Moving to Android 2.1

I have spent a day to merge all 2.1 changes to Android-x86. Now, I can boot up Android-x86 2.1 on both VirtualBox and my EeePC 1000HD. There are new applications, the best one for Android-x86 is the desk clock. I knew some people use the Android-x86 to build some sort of home appliances, this desk clock can be very useful for them.
The bad thing is that many live wallpapers are not working. And even if one works, it is very slow. Now it is very critical to make libhgl to work again.
I'm also seeing that the calendar, gallery3D and Camcorder are crashing, Ya, we will fix them one by one :-). And if you can, please help.
