And i do. But i care for other users who don't. They count on
"Community Updates" to provide some reasonable information. And
instead i see plenty of people coming to IRC asking "Why, are you
really sure there will be no more updates for OM2008.x?" or "Isn't the
2.6.24 kernel the most stable and functional for GTA02?" and all that
kinds of basic misunderstanding because OM doesn't give them enough
And i'm getting more and more frustrated by OM-the-company. Every
day. Their bugtracker doesn't properly work because of "political
issues", their X.org driver development was stalled for month because
of unknown undisclosed reasons, and every day i see something new and
extremely unpleasant done by OM-the-company. Updates that doesn't
update on development status, can you imagine it?
Overall, i'm mostly happy with the community gathered around OM, but
i'm extremely dissatisfied with OM-the-company, especially that
(mostly TPE) parts that _never_ communicate publicly.
