Excellent - so are many of us.
However, being open we can do something about it.
Maybe have a look at Mer : http://wiki.maemo.org/Mer

no, it's not ready.

Not this year - but they are working on, for example, ofono

There is plenty to criticise - but criticism != trolling
Much as I'd love for Mark to be banned because I think he's a... well. I'll stop
there ;) - I'm happy for individuals to learn how to block his emails rather
than have him kicked.

Frankly if people ignored him totally he'd go away. The only reason I'm replying is:

Mark is a troll who's aim is to annoy people. He's pretty good.
Don't let him succeed in putting you off - you need a thick skin in an open

In general, for people who are only planning on bitching and moaning and not
actually *doing* anything then maybe open-source isn't for you?
