I agree with you we need to make a list of applications that are missing and
find a way to adapt or get somebody to develop one.

I seriously need moonlight to keep pace with silverlight is this now the case
people want to watch online tv so its a must for 11.4 never mind 12.

LoadIng / deleting music and backing up apps from Iphone 4 is a must there are
many iphone users sure we can jailbreak install pvmtunes but its not ideal.

Wifi drives me bonkers why must we install firmware and how to install wifi
driver without wifi firmware in first place. Rtl8191/92 still no packaged
driver since jan 2010 is not new!!

Linux point of sale with pdq support I tried to install lemon pos but couldn't
connect to mysql to launch.

Multi user accounting and auditing - kmymoney and gnucash for small business
but not for big companies.

I love what we have but there are holes need filling.

if so, there is a problem and you can't do anything as a developper to
fix this one, I'm pretty sure you have little time left :-).

You see. At least are you telling it.
Try to understand the bugzilla role and it's exclusivity for those that
like to bring in a bug with the goal of getting rid of it.

nobody will even try if the distro is not the very last, because
nobody cares (try 11.4, I was said).

Again, I don't blame anybody (and specially not you :-)

I spent my time recently making doc and video tutorials. I spent more
than a full week (fulltime) to try any openSUSE linear editor and none
could work more than 10 minutes (I was not able to make Blender work
at all, but this is because the lack of documentation)

so I had to revert to my proprietary application. It's not a matter of
obscure bug, here, it's a matter of an application that saves a
project with some data and load the same project next day with other
data... and when 11.4 worked on VirtualBox, that is only with RC2, I
had little time to make bugreports and have them solved :-(

I simply made the conclusion that there is not enough manpower on this
project and that we could help. But I don't want to push only my
interest, but to have a project goal. If my editor is only the project
for the other next year, no problem. But I would like to know.

and I think I wont answer anymore. This is not a discussion I want to
have me alone against everybody. I don't mind to have my bugs fixed. I
mind we have a project with a clear goal.
