Thanks guys for the kind words. Yes - I became a bit disillusioned with the whole DesktopX thing quite a while ago - not with the product but rather the frustration that it would never reach its full potential.
I think Stardock's focus is a long way away from DesktopX and whilst I had hope that development would be picked up that appears not to be the case. I don't necessarily blame Stardock for this - it's just a case of resources and financial return on projects.
The development community hasn't helped itself hugely however by churning out the same old objects year after year (with a few exceptions) and this is something that we should all reflect on. These things are 2 way and we can't just expect people to provide for us if we don't embrace the tools we are given.
So no - "adios" isn't necessarily goodbye, "au revoir" is probably a better choice.
