Not only that, but their Symbian C++ dialect is completely brain dead as well.

I already gave up on it. Sure they are improving the situation, but it still feels worse than using a MS-DOS C++ compiler!

If you compare the productivity one has with Apple or Google's platform, is also easy to see why not so many software houses develop for S60 any longer.

They completely f**ck it up when they introduced the version 3.0. Everyone was expecting that the new version would finally provide a proper C++ environment, but no. They only changed the APIs and introduced the signed process.

Oh well.
