Qtopia is "pure" open source, just no community development, which is why OpieII was started. Same reason as why Opie 1 was started.


Which still does not explain why OpieI should be ditched.
OpieII is still an in incompatible (compared to OpieI) fork of a more advanced Qtopia which suffers from the same problems as OpieI did- no suitable back channel into the parent platform.
So where is the point in that fork if Qtopia delivers almost the same thing ? Or are you expecting to drift away from Qtopia the same way as OpieI did ?

QUOTE
OpieII/Qtopia 4 can be used on any device. There is no difference between the phone profile, and a pda profile.


This is not true. Qtopia runs on any device TT would like it to run on respectively on any device TT delivers implementation for.
I doubt that eg. Qtopia4 will still run on the 31xx/36xx iPAQs or the Simpad.
Other devices must be supported by OpieII then by abstracting the qpe library or whatever serves like that in Qtopia4.

changing to Software Engineer in the hardware group, instead of doing community management/marketing work.


Does that mean that the community manager position at TT is history ?
Interesting...

Congratulations! smile.gif

Okay, I will await for news in the Opie II website (I don't feel very comfortable with the new "phonish" gui). There is also a full bunch of Opie (I) apps that would be nice to be ported to the new environment.

I don't have too much free time either, but I will try to contribute something to somewhere (I dunno which project yet , but I think there is only a handful of developers and dividing them is not a winning way).

I hope more people gets involved.

aside from better looking, could someone list the benefits of Opie II over Opie I?
