  • Sorry, but I am not authorized to talk about details publicly. By the way, did I misconfigure my profile or did you just disclose my first name?
  • godot,
    If you click on the username in a comment you can see the public profile of the poster. Your name is in there. I thought it was polite to use your first name and not the username in my reply. I am sorry if this was not what you wanted. 
    On this website most people use their real names by the way, we have nothing to hide. Openness is the mantra here.
    The X# team shares its work as an open source project and we expect our customers to openly talk with us about their experiences. Both positive and negative experiences, because we can learn from them.

    W.r.t. your reply about not being authorized to talk about the details:
    I really do not understand why you criticize our product in a comment, but when asked, you do not want to explain why. I think that is not fair / polite.
    Anyway, you can always use email to send us your negative experience.


  • "Rock solid" might be considered quite exaggerated by people who know the application...

    Hello Christian,
    I wonder, reading this, if you actually know X# at all?
    On the average X# has less flaws than any Microsoft development product, for example. And any flaws reported are seriously checked and addressed, often within an incredible short time. Unlike Microsoft where almost no flaws are ever solved.
  • I'm not even sure what "application" you are talking about. XSharp or the application that has been migrated from VO to XSharp?
  • Oh my goodness. It seems I have created quite a stir with my comments, with which I was referring to the sentence "The fact that EurekaFach was a rock solid application (...)".

    In fact, I hold X# - the idea, the product and the people involved in it - in very high regard. In my former position I was personally involved in the development of EUREKA-Fach and I immediately gave a "go ahead" nod when the company around Vulcan.NET closed its doors and X# rose from the horizon.

    I was just severely triggered by the wording in the aforementioned sentence because by all common IT standards EUREKA-Fach is not a "rock solid" application. Again, I am not allowed to talk about details here nor by E-Mail but most of you might know the situation when the glossy company brochures don't quite tell everything, to word it very carefully.
  • Brochures are always depicting a nicer picture than reality.

    I think that there are no products that are "rock solid". Maybe some kind of open source projects that are in the public domain and have a high "lets gold plate it" character.

    So, you're actually just saying in the open what any developer in honesty could say about their product.
    When you don't do anything you don't make mistakes.
