ABX, After reading your reply to my post and seeing phrases like
Sorry if it doesn't meet your expectations.
And then after a few years of such hard work I came to the post where somebody is saying like the work all devs made was not made. Thank You!
you seem to kidding here
and so on, i can only conclude that you were somehow offended
by it, if that is the case, then i want to get some things straight right now
1) The intention of this post, was NOT
to offend you, or the other devs (i dint even know you are a dev), nor to say the devs were lazy, dumb or evil.
2) You seem to think that i undermine (im not shure this is the correct word in english), or not appreciate all the hard work the devs (including you), put into wxWidgets.
You are talking to someone who spends 14 hours a day in front of a computer to make a living + also
has to deal with that other "detail" called living a life
, like family, friends, etc. So belive me
, i understand you perfectly
To make this 100% clear, i do know
that you guys are making a huge effort in wxWidgets, and that if you dont do "more", is because you simply dont have the time.
3) You said: "Many brave persons proposed improvements for documentation but nobody seem to be interested in doing hard work".
From the tone of this, i asume that what you really meant to say was:
"You users complain about the things you dont like, but dont do anything to help out fix them".
If that is in fact what you are trying to say, then heres my answer to that, personally, i do everything i can
to help wxWidgets, and yes, i realize that i dont do much, but (like i said before), i, just like you and the devs, also
have a ton of things to do, and very little time to do it, in fact, i might have even less
time to help, why? because i am an independent
software developer, independent as in im NOT on a payrole, independant as in i dont fisnish my work on time = i (literally) dont have money for food. Plus, ibe only been using wxWidgets for a relatively sort time (a few months), so im not precicely a "wxGuru".
Still, (and you can check my posts here, and the stuff ibe submitted to wxCode), i do
try to help out as much as i can. for example, i wrote a little "how to" to try to help out the issue of people having trouble compiling wxWidgets in VC2005. (wich BTW, i have suggested be made a sticky several times).
4) You ask that i quote the use of Turbo C, i think you do understand what i mean, in case you dont, what i meant (the idea) was that the library should be modernized, to use more templates, namespaces, and other "modern" C++ features. And so that you dont think im calling you lazy for not doing it, i like to point out that idid
If you are still using & supporting prehistoric C stuff & compilers because you dont have the time to do a full "overhaul", then we understand, well be patient and help out where we can
Bottom Line (again):
please do not get offended (again) for me saying this, but you (ABX) should learn to tell the diference between a critic
and a mere sugestion
. Sugestion as in im NOT critizising your work, trying to make you look bad, or ofend you, im merely trying to help out by pointing out issues that in my opinion
In any case, if us (the users) issuing sugestions
to you (the devs), is offensive, or somehow unwanted, then i apologize for doing so, and issue one more final
i sugest that the forum rules be updated to say something like: "Please avoid making sugestions or comments about the negative aspects of wxWidgets, as it offends the developers".
BTW: in case its still not clear: my original reply (as well as this one), are
***** NOT ****** a critic, or an intend to offend you.
Nice day to you too
Hier Kommt die Sonne...
