    I have been away from Unix/Linux etc for 15+ years. I had forgotten about Tiny Core and the like. Neat project, as is anything that is minimal, like the number of live Apps in my phone

    While I have been a fan of bare utility since Plan 9 and a renewed fan of *nix minification since D a m n Small Linux, insofar as my portable devices are concerned I favor *breadth* of utility over minification. Except for Propeller and Pi. Tiny Pi. Best Pi. Working toward a custom dense image for that.

    Samsung Syncadapters apparently is responsible for allowing moving App/Widget icons among the home screens

    Thanks, interesting. Since my preference is to have only 1 home panel, Sammy Syncadaptors will remain off here. Just hope I remember about this if ever having reason for >1 home panel.

    Also needed to move an icon around on the same screen.

    I too have just one home screen. I keep a couple of free spots on it to move Apps to temporarily. I tried to re-arrange and it would not do it. I would tap and hold [long press?] wanting to move the icon, the screen would become smaller then immediately go back to full size. Tried it a few times, re-enabled the Synchadapters, and it was back to good.

    I think there were 3 Synchadapter apps. I re-enabled just one of them, but all 3 got re-enabled.

    Strange. Removed an icon/shortcut from my homescreen to create a blank spot, and then moved one of the other icons there with no problem. Maybe the reason I don't need syncadaptors is that I'm not using Samsung's TouchWiz? (Been using Apex, after trying 6 or 8 different homescreen/launchers and staying with Nova for a month or so.)
