I'm sorry if my comment sounded rude, that was not the purpose. But the way you argue and counter argue makes it almost obvious your only purpose is to argue, and you'll be doing everything your way doesn't matter what.
If you'll be doing everything as you like, then there's not purpose to argue how MAME developers do their own stuff, right? Maybe you really need to not go into drugs. I do and I think very clear.
Remember when I said less than 5 PCs for every 100 use Linux? I forgot to add those 5 PCs have different Linux distributions fragmenting the user base a hell a lot more. See how successful the way Linux thinks it is (not saying Linux is bad though).
If MAME adds not only arcade PCBs, but anything arcade related it's more than obvious their purpose is to document hardware than playing with them. So removing everything you don't like, as you wish and that doesn't work will make it less obvious for people the emulator is intended to play them on their PCs? That's a wishful thinking.
