HP and Lotus Should Publish 95LX Specs
I wish HP and Lotus could be a bit more responsive to the specific requests and feedback of end users. I would like to see more coordinated efforts between HP and Lotus to support their proprietary command interpreter system (SYSMGR). I don't have any scoop on either company. I am just a regular user who needs a good sys-mgr-compliant Editor and "can't get no satisfaction". Programmers can't get the info they need from Lotus and users get caught in a run-around between Lotus and HP.

The reason why there are few System Manager applications available is the lack of support that HP and Lotus has shown to SYSMGR since the 95 came out. I thought HP and Lotus would push developers to create system compliant programs by giving them whatever tools needed to make it happen.
The 95LX is so similar to the HP-110 in terms of concept, hardware, and now support that it scares me.
I have run into a stone wall trying to get specs for the built-in communications capabilities of the Filer that are used by Connectivity Pack.

Yeah, you and all of us programmers whose heads are now sore and flat from the stonewalling.
Psion hampers its users and developers by sharply limiting the available tools. Unfortunately, HP and Lotus are nearly as bad. They hamper us by sharply limiting the available information. There should be no restrictions on who has access to the technical reference manual, and the technical reference manual needs to be complete.

Thank you for recently speaking out more strongly about the Lotus/HP failure to make available to talented programmers, the information they need to write applications which make this little machine even more valuable.
