I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

This guy's blog is probably the most useful site for Amiga os4 users.

*** 400MB download compressed ***

Oh well, I won't be installing THAT anytime soon then.

Why does some PC equivalent of MUI have to be so ridiculously large ?

Far better people just take the non GUI code when porting and write a proper MUI (hell even Reaction would do) wrapper for it.

I think it must be built with full debugginh info to be that big, even so I sympathise with your opinion, when Reaction weighs in at 2Mb MUI at a 'bloated' 11Mb 400Mb just seems insane.

What I find particularly odd is that in one thread you have people cheering Qt with all it's huges ness and in another complaing about the resource usage of a few icons!

@all

Thank you so much for your kind words about my blog. I really do enjoy writing it and I am glad if it helps people out with AmigaOS4 and the x1000.



Catcha,

@BillE

It was decided to only make a full blown package. Which means: Complete SDK with tools including all Examples and Demos ready compiled inside (inkl. Spreadsheets, Webbrowsers, etc. etc. etc.). If someone would make a "user archive" it would be something around 10% of the current size.

Stupid. Always go for a light version first and then have an addon of all the extra crap for those that want it.

Thanks to BT and OfCom many of us are still stuck with 0.5Mbps internet connections and a 400Mb download is totally unfeasable.

Apart from that do we really need these PC based GUIs when MUI and Reaction are so much better and tailored for our platform.

If it increases the amount of software available on the amiga platform, i cant see the downside.
You might argue "qt might draw developers from native gui", but my impression is that time is a limited resource since most develop on amiga on hobby basis.
These developers might not have produced anything/much due timerestraints without qt.

The alternative seems to be slower flow of software.

Maybe Im assuming too much.

And i really sympatise with you horrible internet speed. 0,5 is close to useless....
Can hope that if QT is officially embraced it becomes available on cd/dvd from the
likes of amigakit.
That said, for many users these days 400 megs takes mere minutes to download, so
doubt that will be considered an argument (personally got 50/50 net).

Some of the predecessors of version 0.9.0 had two archives, an "user" and an "sdk" archive. Maybe in a later release this will have a comeback.
