I'm not at all happy with the tone of Andre's post.
The way I see it, there is no "tone" there at all, merely a healthy note of consumer enlightenment. The Amiga scene has had quite a few devastating "pre-payment" schemes. And this is not even about pre-payment towards *a deliverable product*. It's about hope and dreams.
When asking 60250 EUR for something that is very likely to literally end up as *vapor*, I think it's quite fair to attach a note that it's not a "regular bounty" with refund policy. I for one am grateful for this note.
That said, whatever you do with your money is your own business...
As you've said, this isn't even a "pre-payment scheme". If you were being promised something, maybe...
And not to sound snide, but as to vapor, when IS Qbox due?
OR, to make it even more pointed, won't we look a bit silly if the other NG OS adopt SMP, and we're still sitting on our 'superiority'?
BTW - What I
do, with my limited funds, appears to be more than most of you do (outside of David).
Do, or don't do, as you will, not only is your business yours (and obviously mine is mine), but I'm completely comfortable with my
decisions.[ Edited by Jim 24.06.2017 - 20:40 ]
