@Dave Nice to see a fellow Tennessean here! It's true that we pay for some free services with our privacy, but I think more often we're actually paying with our attention data (search this blog for "attention" and you'll find several posts on the subject).

Honestly, I'm torn. It took a while for me to warm up to Android after using an iPhone for so long, but when I use an iPhone now I feel so limited. And as a developer, I *love* the ease of getting software into the Android Market. So for me personally, Android is the best. But for my non-techie wife, I still think the iPhone is a better choice. It's simpler, has fewer things to fiddle with, and just feels less geeky overall.

@Glyn Good luck making the transition to mobile! It's not easy, but it's worth the effort - if for no other reason than to be doing something new after so many years of Windows development.

Our WP7 is briefly delayed. I've removed the link until it appears in the marketplace.

@AndoKid Sorry about the back button bug. This is fixed in our internal build, which will be in the Android Market within a few days.

@Aviel Thanks! I started learning Java/Android on February 1, and I'd say it was 2-3 months before I was able to develop something usable. Then it took another 2-3 months to refine it to the point that it was releasable. Titanium Mobile looks good, but we already had a skilled iOS developer (Brent Simmons), and I prefer using the "official" tools.

@Zack The first month or so after switching to a Mac was rough, and I still have trouble remembering the keyboard shortcuts, but overall it's been a good switch and I needed the change. But it's hard for me to really compare Windows with a Mac since I don't develop for the Mac - being a Windows dev completely colored my opinion of the OS.

@Andrew Thanks for bringing that to my attention. It's a bug - expect to see it fixed soon.

@critter They're pretty advanced - I don't recommend them for those new to programming. But they're great if you've been programming a while and are new to Java.

Great to hear you say that, Stanley! As you can imagine, I really worried about handing over TopStyle to someone else, so I was relieved to find someone of Stefan's caliber to take it over. He's done an outstanding job, IMO.
