That was your word. I didn't even know, that it exists in English.But the question was, if it is important to have companies on our side or not. M$ had that. Phil Roberts doubted, if that would help GS. He said, the hobbyists would be enough for GS to succed. And I said, if we have the companies on our side, we've almost won the battle.No, I never say that, I never said anything about Hobbyists.
I said that the chance to find programmers in the free *nix world (Linux, BSD, ... ) who would be willing to support GNUstep to create a complete, stable end-user environment solutionAnd those are not hobbyists? (concerning their work for GS)
is probably higher and more realistic than trying to port GS to Windows in order to come up with a full blown,Not full blown. Just finish the port to Windows. No ProjectBuilder and all that.
cross-platform development solution which perfectly integrates into the native host OS (and thus not being an end user environment!)We don't need the perfect solution. We just need as much, that companies say: "it's almost complete for our needs. We could complete the rest with a reasonable investment."
