>I like the simplicity of the install, I dislike that spaces can't be in the folder path. I understand the whole development >side and that you shouldn't have spaces in development folders. But at the same time, as a developer, I know how to >handle folder/file names with spaces on Windows/Linux/Unix/etc. and fail to see why folder names must be space-free.
The only reason why you cannot have space is that our builds based on make, and gnu make does not work at all with spaces in the path names, and since installation directory contains libraries and headers, which are part of make rules, it just won't work, Sorry about it.

- How was your installation experience?
Very good, installed in an Ubuntu 11.10 VMWare VM with no troubles.
- How was your initial setup experience?
Mostly good, took some muddling through it all to setup build environments but nothing crazy.
- What did you like? What you don't like?
IDE is nice and clean, not much I don't like but I haven't used it long enough yet either.
- What do you think we can improve?
Get that cascades UI integrated! I'm sure this is holding up quite a few apps that could easily be ported.
- How this is compared to other SDK's you used?
Pretty good but not quite the same integration level just yet. (Magneometer access, documented notifications interface, etc)
Overall pretty happy with it, have ported a few apps in Qt and am working on some others in the NDK. The speed of apps in the NDK is pretty impressive, developers needed this. Thanks!

The latest installer crashes. I have not been able to install the NDK at all.
Please see the following unanswered post. http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Native-Deve
This is a blocker for me and presumably others.

Kind of a hassle to remember to switch to device-debug when you just want to use breakpoints. Even after switching, the debug configuration that I created was still using device-release until I had to go in and change it in a second place to device-debug.

I have the installation was no problem as under Linux and under windows.
After SDK Simbian 6.1 in which I worked, Blackberry NDK is very good.
I had to work with the NDK from under windose for the reason that in Linux
for development on the qml not possible to switch the window to "disign fashion"
"vertikal split mode" and "horizontal split mode".
Also in ubuntu periodically disappear virtual machines vmware player,
but as I understand it is a problem of the vmware.
