And yes, this is good example where I have communication problem with SOME people. In polite fashion ? No, as I said I was angry. That site is not polite, Hatari team Windows treatment is not polite. They don't appreciate people's time. There are minimal standards when distributing some SW online, or wherever. Not indicating in which Win. version it is tested, on which versions should work is absolute abysmal. So, I communicated in my way further - explained it all. Because that is in some way also Hatari bug, so it was on topic. Then, what right thothy, or npoma. have to say me to stop posting there ? Is it polite?

darklight wrote:Just my 2 cents worth here - AtariZoll you tend to write longer posts than usual - very long posts actually.
I understand that this isn't 100% your own fault, but perhaps think about breaking a long post out into a new thread - just like you've done here.

AtariZoll wrote:There were 3 things which probably 'insulted' Pomarede and other Hatari people. I put it in quote, because insult is subjective thing - I mean I did not insult, you felt insulted.
First was about low efficiency of code. Yep, it is true. Especially in Win 7, from some reason.
AtariZoll wrote:So, back to that 'reckless' - you just can not continue same attitude with Windows releases as 10 years before, because things are pretty much different now. Now we have in use basically 4 versions - XP (less and less), 7, 8 and 10. And as may see there are many differences. So, I say again - it is not users who need to test it every time on what it works and how. If you are not able to test, then keep some statistic, publish on site, state there on what it works - that's absolute minimum. If Steven Seagal can do it alone ...

AtariZoll wrote:Yes, I did lot of diverse tests, but you again come with ridiculous assumption (well, and 'insulting' too) - that I did not compare speeds (better said CPU load) with same Hatari versions. Of course I talked about worse CPU load of that SDL2 build in same OS, on same HW, same machine, so with everything same, than CPU load with 'official', more compatible SDL1 version (which on top of all has 60% shorter exec. file).

Yes. So much yes! If the reporter is polite and helpful, they get helped. If the reported is obnoxious and demanding, they get ignored. If the reporter is willing to perform a git-bisect, you give them step by step instructions and help them through it. If the reporter demands a fix, you give them a quote and request payment in advance (or just ignore them).
