Like many of you, I am sometimes annoyed by the fact that some developers just stop working on software they created (see examples below). As we try to cope with the loss, we sometimes will not accept the fact. Me for instance, started using
gradiator, via VirtualBox with Ubuntu 12.04.
But eventually we all must come to terms with the facts: some apps are no more.
So this question - on behalf of future users and developers - will benefit both party's.
How do I develop software for Ubuntu that one could still use in future versions.
