Hi all Mac & Zaurus owers,

we have and will put a lot of effort into mySTEP and QuantumSTEP and need feedback to better focus the limited time we can spend for that project...

So we kindly ask you to help to shape the project.

Many thanks,

project manager QuantumSTEP

Here are few observations (I did not vote since I wanted to check too many items and could not decide which to leave out).
I think it is critical for you guys to finish the full sync with mac (tiger) addressbook and calendar.
Other than that focus should be to finish and stabilize key applications (I have been reluctant to even try these releases as it seems like most apps are not quite finished - feel free to flame me if I'm wrong but it seems that a few times I saw announcements about releases it appeared to have disclaimers about some key features not working/implemented - as I contemplate to move to this from Cacko this does not give me warm and fuzzy feeling so I just put off trying QuantumSTEP instead. By the way, for me key applications include PIM (addressbook, calendar), browser (not sold on myAfrica as I find it hard to believe it can be more complete or better strategic solution than firefox or minimo - although to be fair I have not tried it), stable pdf viewer, and some decent word processor + spreadsheet (maybe new version of openoffice can be ported?).
If you can get these key apps working and with functionality at least similar to what is available in Sharp/Cacko ROMs and also provide full sync with tiger I don't see how all of us who love osx would not immediately switch to QuantumSTEP.
Finally, please dont take these suggestions the wrong way - I appreciate what you are trying to do regardless of how far you get with the project - just sharing some thoughts.
