My comment to http://blog.cihar.com/archives/2007/05/15/why_do_people_buy_non_document... :

you are generally Michal right. Well documented hardware = less problems...

But: very often people buy, what they know and what is compatible with their other hardware (like memory cards). Sometimes not well documented hardware is much better than documented. I remember times of Nokia 3310. You simply didn't have cheap and so good phone...

    • I have upgraded gammu.org to latest versions: MediaWiki to 1.9.3 and Mantis to 1.0.7. Please report any problems...
    • I have released new test Gammu+ 0.24.00: it's rather another test release, but it brings new important things like much improved phonebook support, extended cfg dialog and other (I have added screenshots). It's time to add N6288 pbk features now, end connections (DLR3, etc.), add sending linked SMS and test on various phones. And we will have first stable release...

    I was playing today with latest PC Suite from Nokia (6.83) and NSU. I decided to write few words about it...

    Installer: 23 MB, on HDD the same... It looks nice (better than earlier versions), but doesn't have too many functions and in many places you have info about DRM only (for example: why the hell does it read standard phone applets and waste user time, when few seconds later speak, that it's DRM protected ?). And in license you have a lot of info, what you can't with it...

    Gammu+ 0.22.00 available. Released, because diff file was too big ;-) Among various bugfixes and improvements I would like to notify especially, that during restoring software inform, what from pbk wasn't restored and why.

    I must say, that it's near such point, that I have everything for personal usage. For quite new phones you have:

    • pbk support (excluding caller groups, ringtones, sms lists, voice tags and few other, which are IDs for some phone memory places, everything is like in Gammu 1.09.00 or even better)

    My diff file for Gammu+ became too big and I decided to release 0.21.00 faster (it doesn't have some planned things).

    Few notes about this and other issues (random):

    • I'm almost happy from pbk/calendar/todo/notes quality and I almost switched my personal backups/restores from Gammu to Gammu+. This is not beta, but rather Release Candidate (when we compare to commercial packages).
    • I updated Gammu+ section and you see some more developer and user docs. In other words: see, how does it look and what profits it can give to you...

    I decided too, that Gammu bugs should be added to Michal's bug tracker. Expect disabling Gammu project in bug tracker on gammu.org soon

    I would like to write here some more and less bitter and some good words about developing Open Source software. These are some random thoughs. This is based on own experiences, but not only... Sorry for grammar mistakes...

    I will try to answer on some questions:

    why people create Open Source software ?

    Few new things:

    • I'm thinking a little about last wiki change about hacking... it looks to be stupid joke, but...
    • new Gammu+ will be available during this week. it won't have Linux support, because my Internet connection is too slow to download all Debian packages and I will have to buy some distribution in free moment... But the good news is, that it will have Notes, ToDo and some other...

    MS Windows (2007)

    These are my random thoughts about MS Windows for x86... IMHO, we can speak about few time periods:
    198x - Windows 1.x, 2.x
    1990 - Windows 3.0. First more widely accepted and used

    1992 - Windows 3.1 (Janus). Only protected mode, new: True Type fonts

    1993 - Windows 3.11. APM

    Summary: 16-bit time. Microsoft cooperated with IBM and there was OS/2 created during this time. First tries of making graphic subsystem (there was DirectX from it created). There were first network releases (Windows for WorkGroups).
