Of your many messages I thought it necessary to responde to this one.
There are no plans to port loadstone to any other opperating system. The 
code is written specifically for symbian and it wouldn't be an easy matter 
to port it to anything else I don't think. I really wouldn't like having to 
program for windows mobile either. I would however, like to port to linux 
since then I'd have a real opperating system to work with. Unfortunately I 
don't think any of the linux phones talk yet. If loadstone were ported to 
another system it would probably end up being a completely separate code 
base since symbian has its own way of doing just about everything.
If someone really wants to try taking on the task of porting then I can help 
with explanations of code etc.
As for loadstone becoming out of date and obsolete, I don't think that's 
going to happen any time soon. Loadstone will continue to run as long as 
nokia phones continue to use symbian and I haven't heard of any plans by 
nokia to change that.

Also if you port to windows mobile andd Linux then it can be incorporated into notetakers such asthe voice sense while you still keep it free and open source. Someone told me that if loadstone is not ported to other operating systems that it will eventually become out of date and obsolete.
