It can be done from Windows too. Even I could...

Thanks... even if I don't swing that way I had obviously missed the linked thread.

No one actually needs "apps" (except -maybe- if you think that a cellphone has to be a gaming platform).
You need at most a few "killer apps" for those things you actually need to do using a cellphone and that cannot be reliably done in the cellphone browser. That said, you don't want to pay for "apps" when free alternatives are good or even better.

This seriously limits the "paid apps" field. I think Jolla guys were right to not to waste resources on the apple-styled memes (paid apps, in-app purchases, and so on).

When they named the F5121 a lot of us bought it.
(arrrrrgh, my brand new F5121 already sports a bump before installing SF X!).

What if they publicly "plan to support" a model and then something bad happens? (say, "we can't get reliable wifi support": you can live without bluetooth, but you can't live without wifi...).

I'm inclined to think likewise @alfmar does really...
I already have pretty much what I need on SFOS and cannot really imagine what plusses would paid apps bring to the platform.

The few bits and pieces missing I can fill up myself pretty neatly.

Most of the "killer apps" are simply gateways to some kind of service (whatsapp, uber, tinder, spotify .etc) anyway and until those services choose to support sailfish os then there will be a perceived app gap.

Paid apps for tablets would be great, but at current sailfish os tablets are reasonably non-existent so who would buy it?

All these are prime examples of "services" which are designed just to lure people in to be exploited and ground to powder to power the provider's machinery.

No thanks!

Not that I disagree with you but pichlo already has a Sailfish device (Jolla 1) and does not need another one and juiceme alone, even if he purchased another one, is not going to save the company.

Jolla needs masses and masses are addicted to those kind of services.
