I'm doing nothing of the kind.  I took your metric: the SDK and simply
compared the two of them. Also, Mark is once again doing his famous argument
which is bring up one thing and then ignore it later.  He says the IT is not
for the end user and only for developers, then complains that it does not
have a mature and robust PIM system (something I have yet to be convinced
that it needs, but that is another discussion).

You can place one in the 'cons' column, but not both.  No double-dipping
