On to the good things

Having been on a negative side with some of my post lately
I though it would be a good idea to provide a counterpart :wink:

Did anyone notice the omnipresence of QSSL staff to answer
question in these newsgroup. Adam, Eric, Brenda, Dave,
are all over the place. I’ve got to hurry to find post
to contribute to (probably explains why I use advocacy so much)
Not to mention the senior staff dropping in.

Also you got Alex ( VP marketing) participating to provide
answer to more business oriented comments.

You’ve got Harris as a manager of the QNX Developer’s Community.
That means somebody decided it was worth paying someone to
handle the developer Community . I think that says something.

Then there is Debbie handling consultants.

Then there are the QSSL staff having to endure the constant
complaining; “this sucks, why have you done this and why have
you done that, you should have done this instead, etc”
Yet when I speak to some of them, they seems to keep a good
spririt about it. Not an easy thing.

Phew, I’m out of breath :wink:

Anyone care to make this thread as long as the others…

I’ve said this this often. I think that QNX is the greatest OS out there to

develop for. One big reason for that is that the QSSL staff are BY FAR the
greatest. Just try to direct a question to the developer of any specific
MicroSlob product. Even if they could figure out which 400 of their 10,000
programmers actually worked on teh product you need help with, you still
can’t ask them a question.

So, I believe in QSSL. I want to do everything that I possible can do to
promote them and their OS. But yes, from time to time I am bothered by
their business politics. Hopfully, one day they will return to their roots
when most of us old timers really came to love QSSL.

There is no miracle and I guess it is not altruism either.
They have bunch of free tools so it would be strange if they
don’t provide some sort of support.

What I like is their standard support plan I had to use
it several times and I always (well almost :wink:) got a solution in
a short period of time and conversations always were professional
and friendly.

Thanks Mario, I think the newsgroups are the best resources for everyone
(junior and senior).

I find that many of the criticisms are on point. As with any project, it’s
always a balance of wants/needs & resources.

And might I add, this has been true from the begining. In the earliest
versions, I called Gordon Bell, and he had me dial his modem with my
modem, and then used “talk” to send me the lastest.

This went on for a while until their first BBS was up and running.
