A fitting nickname you've got there. I'm not "harping" on it. Read the replies to my post. I'm not the one going "OMG MICROSOFT IS ASSHOLE ME NO WANT MICROSHIT ACQUIRE EVERYTHING". I've expressed my gratitude for "Everything" time and again on these forums.
There is only what is. David does what he does, when he does it. Until you are I can do better, we live with that or do without. You want to see things happen quicker. You've offered suggestions. If they're acted upon or not only time may tell. No need to keep harping on it.
A master of the obvious you are. Things will be done when they're done. I OBVIOUSLY CAN TELL.
Besides, how is my offering suggestions , an act you've recognized, harping?
Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to be a dick, but it's been ages since the last build came out. Not that I have any gripes with .451a, I haven't encountered any bugs, and the core functionality is there, but it'd love to see it improved.
I remember you expressing your reluctance about releasing the source. I don't blame you, but it actually could speed up/revive development.
You could sell "Everything", but I doubt it'd bring in serious money.
I haven't even pushed any suggestions on anyone, I just put stuff out there. I'm not even defending those options. How is that harping?
Attitudes like yours (cacamama) only slow developers down that are working on volunteer projects.
I haven't attacked anyone unlike "vegas". I even contributed by writing scripts that used add minor functionality to "Everything" (look them up, I've written 2-3 scripts). How's that slowing the developer down? Read the posts I've quoted, I'm not even supporting the ideas, just putting them out there, discussing them. As you may have noticed, this board hasn't been that active anyway.
The idea with MS adopting 3rd party software is that it's easier for the developer to get support from MS and to have access to certain details. It also ensures that (to a degree) said software is complete or stable , since it's going to be presented to the world as an MS offering.
There certainly have been other good projects that have fallen by the wayside. People change, priorities change.
I know. I stated more than once that releasing the source may not ensure the advancement of "Everything". I am not being a smartass or telling anyone how to do things.
Be thankful for what you have been given to this point.
I AM THANKFUL. My mouth has run dry praising "Everything", about how I've encountered no bugs despite it being alpha software, about how "it's fine the way it is".
