I'm missing your arguments.

Simply telling somebody is wrong without giving any reasons is nothing what I would name a "professional discussion".

Not sure where you're getting your data from on this. But if it's true, why bother with QNX at all? Self-hosted development is one of the only things that QNX has that is truly unique in the RTOS world.

The old package installer sucked, for sure. But are you actually BRAGGING about pkgsrc being difficult to use?

BigBear wrote:Photon works very well, even for heavy-load applications. No need to switch to other systems.

It's not a question of switching to other systems. It's a question of available functionality. I've bitterly complained for years about the lack of any kind of vector graphics support. Maybe the Khronos / OpenGL ES stuff will eventually lead to OpenVG support, which would be something. Anyway, there are an awful lot of programs out there written in Qt or GTK+ that it would be nice to be able to leverage.

Perfect, huh?

Well, that attitude doesn't do much for the QNX community, does it? The guy is complaining about lack of support and you tell him not only that you won't help him but that he never should have asked in the first place. I'm glad the other people on this forum do not share your attitude.

I think that it is VERY strange that HansHans uses the same useless phrases like elmi... :roll:
