You say you have not sold us out? your dropping support for all other
devices to concentrate exclusively on apple products, I think that is really
narrowing the projects focus.

I see this as a betrayal of the projects principles and selling us out.

Your abandoning all other rockbox users.

I hope someone sets up an alternative project to rockbox.

I think the community should have been consulted on the hole idea of doing
this.

I think the way this has just been announced as a done deal is extremely
under handed and I can't believe this has been allowed to happen, and i
think the phrase cash bonus says it all.
