    So your selling it to the delveopers to help build your user base up and there is no support for it either ? Sounds like a great plan.

    From my understanding, they are releasing a developer edition out of courtesy/respect for the mp3car.com type enthusiast. It's kind of like a startup business making it big and then going back and performing discounted work for the people "who helped along the way"/"inspired us" etc. It's a nice gesture, but not their ultimate business model nor a requirement.

    If you are interested in developing on top of the StreetDeck platform, and are looking for support with the product(s) you are developing, I would suggest doing what most developers do with the source company: establish a contact, conversation and relationship with the guys over there. This way, if they are interested in a relationship with you, there are understood expectations re: support (eg: an SLA). Not only does this allow them to better serve their serious outside developers, but it avoids them having to take on a blanket statement of "yeah we will support developers on their personal machines (with their personal problems) all over the country who may or may not know a thing about programming (let alone programming in our proprietary development framework) but want to get in on the action because [insert reason why you want to be a developer here] but 1. may not finish the product(s) they are asking us support questions on 2. may be infringing on a future development idea of our own 3. may be infringing on an existing patent/etc of someone else" 4. 100 other reasonable reasons.

    Remember, this is StreetDeck & MP3Car, not Intel or MS.

    Are the developer tools available to people who buy systems? I like the system, but I can see myself wanting to tweak the screens for my use.

    Yes, the developer tools already ship free with every system. There is an icon installed under Start | StreetDeck | Tools | Skin Editor (BETA). Unlike the main program though, there is alot of known issues with the Skin Editor, mostly related to scripting. The skin editor was successfully used to create the entire default skin though so you should be able to do all the editing you want to it, you will just have a lot of problems trying to create your own scripted module at this point. If you do purchase a system and would like a to install the development tools on your home PC too, you can let us know and we will tell you what to download to get this setup.

    The online update function will automatically update the skin editor too. You have to manually launch the online update through the installed icon though.

    I'm sorry you hate, hate is one of those emotions that never leads to anything productive. Useful conversations rarely develop when hate is on the table.
