Pehaps because you act like many other newcomers, stepping into the room boasting big words with little backing. Please drop the condescending tone and adopt a little humility. This is a team, try acting like a team player.

Certainly not. Popularity is far down the list of priorities for most open source projects, including Rockbox. Performance and reliability are usually at the top, with extensibility often coming in third.

If you want mass-market appeal, flashy "user-centric" design and crappy performance, get an iPod.

If you instead want to help improve Rockbox, please sit down and participate in the teamwork.
