Thanks for your effort.  Competing with mobile OS's was a mountain to
climb, and I actually thought you got pretty close to the peak!

If there's negative comments on this list, it's due to how far the project
came against the odds, and frustration at being so close.  And that people
barely had time to take in the decision.

This has been one of the most brilliant communities anywhere.  I hope it
continues in some sense, because the potential is still world changing.

Thanks for keeping the list open, and all the best!
