Yes Daniel all your points are valid. Lets just enjoy that somebody is actually trying to improve the pdaXrom in both software and money effort. So it ends here and we might review later but at the moment there is all go from all the pdaXrom developers for your contiuned development and sales.

Btw. to everybody - its a long time since anybody donated anything

I don't mean to be a pain here or anything but my records show that I sent 100 canadian dollars on Jan 5 this year. It took a few weeks to be claimed as I recall.

Laze and all pdaXrom team,

Thanks

The plan is to either create a general account... or to create seperate paypal accounts for each dev that is willing to accept donations...

Keep a look out on pdaxrom for donation links in the about us section.

I have used hermocom's shoutcast browser/player (on Cacko), and I have to say it's a nice product, and was made freely available.

It seems to me that DH's sin has been in not communicating well with the pdaXrom team.

Just a thought, but maybe he could directly sponsor pdaXrom by being allowed to put paid adverts on the pdaXrom site.

I suspect that there are quite a few wanna-be Z users who are scared of buying one because they think it'd be in Japanese.... Fig Labs do a similar job re-packaging the Sharp ROM and fully anglicising it and have contributed back. I would expect him to provide a good warranty and repair service for zaurus hardware too!

I hope that we can give DH/hermocom the benefit of the doubt, and think that anything that brings more people into the zaurus owner community is a good thing.

well, it's not written by me, I have just modified it and repackaged it (I guess you speak about the python-based one?).
It has been written by a Japanese developer, and I converted some Japanese stuff in it to English or corrected some translation errors, as I recall, and added a recording function.

You are right.

This is generally a nice idea. But since I cannot foresee how well weeXpc will be accepted and sell, I avoid everything which produces costs on a regular basis.
But advertisement on pdaXrom.org in conjunction with a higher donation on each weeXpc sale would be an option.

Of course the user has the normal warranty if he buys a new Zaurus with the software package.

This would be a no go, due to the fact that ibiblio frowns upon paid adverts on sites that they host...

Excellent reply, Daniel.  I think this really puts everything in perspective.

One fear that I had after I heard about the end of Zaurus production was that interest in further development would wane.  If anything, your business should be beneficial to continued development, which also serves my own self-interest.

Good luck.
