Well I think you decision is already take so I'm not going argue with you. Just little information : As I understand Tuomo Valkonen as stop the developement of this software. Here is what he say : «I have recently given up on the failure known as Linux, and switched to Windows. As I thus probably won't be working much on Ion3 anymore, and since it seems very stable anyway, the 28-day clause in the license should serve little practical purpose anymore. It has therefore been lifted.» --> http://www.modeemi.fi/~tuomov/ion/news.html Anyway if you don't want that ports I can understand easily why. That make me sad, but thanks to Dmitry I can use ion-3 and because ion-3 not going to evolve I'm going to keep that «pseudo-ports» in some «safe»-place.
