In the News Okay, so this is entirely new to me. Sparrow is was an email client for Mac OS X and iOS (and Windows), which brought a decent Gmail experience to these platforms - as opposed to Apple's own not-so-good Gmail support and Google's Gmail iOS application which, well, is just a webpage. Google has now acquired Sparrow, and basically all hell has broken loose, to the point of Rian van der Merwe writing that 'we' lost "faith in a philosophy that we thought was a sustainable way to ensure a healthy future for independent software development, where most innovation happens".

Was he? I suppose you didn0t catch the plural. Here it is:

GIMP, VLC, Mplayer are developers get their money from other sources and lets be honest they are way off what professionals expect.


Plural. It is much more likely that he was refering to "those applications". Specially if you consider that it was a reply to a comment quoting his (moondevil's) own opinion that "most open source desktop applications suck".

So, I'd check my reading comprehension skills if I were you.
