That doesn't help with bugs in abandoned software though. Much Android software runs on a virtual machine anyway right ? I believe I've still seen cases where code doesn't work on x86 android as only arm binaries were available (When fiddling with Android on the o2 Joggler).
An open source library is far more useful to me than a closed source one.
But this is just going in circles anyway. People can carry on using closed source. I'll carry on using open. Everyone's happy. The Amiga situation is unlikely to change - Amiga users are stuck in their ways
If this thread helps a few people try a different model with their development - or release their unmaintained old Amiga code, then something good has happened (imho).
