> Then on top of that even after shipping a development mule type product (N9) to their target developers they decided to go through another rewrite, which seems a bad move.
Yeah. I was excited about the platform and got me a 770 as soon as they became available. I really wanted to develop for it.
About a year later they dropped all support for the 770 as the N800 came out, and alarm bells started ringing. Another year after that they announced the current platform based on Debian and GTK+ had no future, and that developers where basically wasting their time and should switch to QT, but oh yeah, QT devices weren't available and wouldn't be for several years. Or, “how to kill your developer base as quick as possible”
I dropped the platform completely right then and there as it seemed to be a project that was completely mismanaged with no future. I'm sorry to see that what I feared came to pass; just glad I didn't invest any more effort in it in the last four years.
