considering it wasn't that long ago they were going on about how they'd never try and make any money whatsoever out of the projects, and now they have paetrons raking in a whole bunch with none of it going to the guys writing the actual emulators (and some very aggressive comments pulled from IRC logs hitting out at the emulators, calling them illegal etc. as justification of why the money shouldn't go to them) ... yeah

vile project, really sad to see so many people behind it, same for a quite a few others recently (closed source bullshit for modern systems pulling in huge amounts of cash and ensuring nobody else can contribute)
