They will take one look at this thread and decide that Kodi is more focused on other platforms and that Windows devs and there ideas / suggestions are poorly received and therefore go elsewhere. Not saying this would necessarily be the case, but it is the perception that is being created.

Every Windows dev, every linux dev needs to know - that kodi is developed as a platform for multiple architectures. If a future dev wants to make special things for platform A - that would only bloat platform B or decay the given architecture further - then he can nicely fork kodi and do his own thing.

But I don't stay that argument, that working long years without even contacting team kodi at all and then being disappointed when a solely standing monolite is not merged with a big hurray ...

That makes sense and is understandable, but it is how the message appears to be conveyed that is of concern.

That's fair enough. What Team Kodi decides to support is their choice.
