Not A Team Player (tm)
Impatient and cynical. Moody. With no understanding of the realities of the software business. Obviously don't write c++ code.
All this because I dare mention that Nokia has released a beta of a tool for Qt without source code.
(checking) This is a free software community, isn't it? We actually do believe in those things still, don't we?
And yes, I do write code, have been for many years. And have worked with a number of variations of designers. Always end up yearning for a text editor. I'm funny that way, goes with moody and cynical.
And no, seriously no, I will not use, look at or try a binary development tool. Been there, done that. Life is too short. In fact, offerings of that sort are taken by my flawed personality as an insult. Especially when I'm expected to be grateful, demeaned and condescended to.
This is a free software community, the only thing we ask for is that our software is free. Why do the promise free software as opposed to releasing free software?
Release the source code, or it doesn't count. Repeatedly, I've had the feeling that how we respond to what happens now will affect how Nokia treats us in the future.
