So 1) there is a bunch of them, and they STILL can't get it released almost 2yrs? and 2) sorry nonprofit doesn't compute when they received over $45,000 of donations from people who want to see VLC player on the Surface RT, so to me there's absolutely no excuses for taking so long... sounds like your making excuses for them. Their actions just say to me thanks for the money suckas!
I was correcting your factual assumptions, but it's obvious you're so extremely livid over this moral travesty that you'd rather accuse another poster of (whatever) and complaining here than taking the fight to VLC. If you backed the KS I suppose I can understand why you're incredibly pissed off, but maybe KS has a clause about "nondelivery" you can look into. I use VLC on my desktop but a different player on my Surface with no issue, so this isn't a critical deal for me.
I can't check right now, but last I remember, the Metro desktop release didn't have stellar reviews and had quite a few problems. It'd be better to address those now than compile a bad ARM port, probably. *shrug*
