1.)I don't care what you're doing but you should clarify one thing. What you do is not about Free Software. You're not interested in your personal Freedom and will die in slavery. Russell King would tell you to better use the other Windows based Embedded Operating System, but as I don't care I don't mind....

2.) Your SDK is illegal. You distribute GPL/LGPL binaries. Either remove it or get into conformance with the Software included. See http://www.gpl-violations.org/
To get into conformance with the licenses publish the source in the same place and the build tools you used to create your binaries and distribution.

3.) Tearing apart original copyrighted applications and redistribution the result is illegal, you do not respect the intellectual property of thirds. I get the bitter test of being surrounded with script kiddies, having their own winftp based warez server. Please tell me I'm wrong and show your written copy of Sharp, Opera any other provider that you're allowed to redistribute their property

4.) I'm looking forward for your maintaining efforts, providing security fixes and similar...

I leave 5.) to n.) for future comments and I hope you find your way into Freedom, forcing slavery onto other users is not an option.

This is mildly interesting.

At first I thought this was someone with some legit ties to OE (given rumors of bad behaviour on irc, and the new user name, etc) But since he apparently doesn't read very well, doesn't really have a solid grasp of the context of the elements of zaurus software, nor a good grasp of law (libel is defintely illegal, for example), I have to assume it is a kid with nothing else to do. It had momentarily crossed my mind that he might be a plant , trying to alienate people from OE, while doing as much mischeif as polssible to other linux projects. I think that theory has to take second place to the bored fanatical teenager theory. I guess we just have to skip over his posts for a while. If Guylhem is going to write an editorial that suggests that OE is not the best solution for the Z.... then there will be more of this, till he/they/it find something else to ruffle up their brownshirted little selves.

The thing about trolls is, they love to get a rise out of folks. Assuming he is an OE provocateur, then wasting time discussing his stuff is exactly what he's after. If, in a less paranoid interpretation, he's just some snot-nosed brat, psychology or sociology grad student or other trouble maker, then he's gratified by the reaction, however long it takes us to make it. Either way, really ignoring him, (as in click on his link, select "ignore user" in the first table and presto, no more troll smile.gif ) is the only way to go.
