[Freeswitch-users] Feedback

One thing that is disturbing is that after all the time and effort I put
into making FreeSWITCH cross platform, the very idea of such an initiative
wipes all that out in favor of one platform.  So even if you are willing to
share it, and it's not B.S. its bothersome to me that:

1) I spent 6 years making it work everywhere and you aim to put all your
extended efforts into steering it to a separate version
2) Making it use less open source libs is not really a good thing since its
an open source project.
3) You did not propose anything to us first, that's a bit disrespectful.

I think about everybody who uses FreeSWITCH when I make decisions, and this
just feels selfish to me, (probably not for windows users)  but hey....

On the other hand, Henry has a great point, that looks like a pretty big
list of changes to do in a few weeks considering you were only asking
trivial newbie questions as recently as sept 18th and your website is the
generic IIS document root.   I would be pretty concerned about vishing if I
were a reader of this post.

I guess seeing is believing and if you are legit our windows-friendly
developers will let me know.
