I didnt insult anybody despite here on this list, maybe with the exception
of Mr. Richard D. Felker III. I herwith apologize for the insulting tone and
the rude words i was using. I twould be nice though if Mr. Felker could
decide to apologize also, for having repeatedly called our specs and project
being 'crap', apparently without knowing much more about some basics.

> don't start to flame please!

Again my sincere apologies, i had a hard week with both kids and the wife
being ill ( flu and diarrhoe together ), and had about 2 - 4 hours sleep per
night ( in an average ). Then, on the very first occasion where i had some
time to relax a bit and check the most important mailing lists i find the
project we all have been working on for about 2 years now being named like
'crap' 'too complex' , etc. . I overreacted in this situation.

Thanks. There are a couple of people waiting for it to release working
Windows tools, mainly because there was no ( or not much ) support for OGM
lately. Yes, we hope it will be accepted by the users.

Sorry, misunderstanding. I thought from reading the comments from the people
here on this list that there is no interest in supporting menues and such,
so i guessed you like to keep things simple. I am well aware that mplayer is
the most successful Mediaplayer for the Linux world, and certainly a very
successful opensource project.
I didnt mean at all to belittle your project or tell untrue things about it.
Hopefully we can find back to a level of conversation between our,
admittedly very small, project and your very successful project, that is not
based on assumptions and mutual insulting.

Best regards
