Yes, I think this is one of the reasons why. The fact that the
environment uses its own gtk (while a lot of stuff is being pushed
upstream) - this forces you to use a chroot environment. While
scratchbox does a lot of things for you to make things less nasty, it's
a whole new thing to learn for the most of us. And it's far from trivial

But please, while you criticize "nokia" remember a lot of us are just as
much a part of the community as you are. It's been said earlier too -
look at Sardine, and see how things are being worked on. Perhaps slower
than you wish, but I also wish it happened faster. There's just a LOT of
stuff that has dependencies on how the daily progress happens, and stuff
does not change overnight for that reason. :-(


A: No
Q: Should i quote this on the top?
