There is no 'the' developer. Qtopia was a project that had many  
developers. There were more than 30 developers of qtopia, not  
including the Qt part. Include that, and you near about 80.
I am quite flattered that you think I was a major contributor to  
Qtopia. In reality, I was only a major developer for the Neo device

How can we when you just rant on and on and on?

That's fine if you do not like my opinion, but that doesn't make it  
invalid. You need to separate opinions from facts, because you seem to  
be getting them mixed up.

For one, it isn't MY software, and I never said it didn't have issues.

I have no reason to apologize. Show me where I stated your issues do  
not matter, or were imaginary?

What I told you was a way to work with the software, as it is. You  
could have found that out yourself, it you would have read the help to  
see how it works. It is not that complicated, but you must know how it  
works to use it correctly. Like driving a car.
