    I think you should mention the payment issues with Google Checkout system (as a separate item in your list of drawbacks).

    They have been here for more than a year and Google has done NOTHING to fix them. Their advice "login into Google Talk, that might help those downloads" is often meaningless.

    Customers accuse developers of Google Checkout bugs, some even threaten to bring the issue to court. Why? How can we be responsible for Google Checkout bugs?

    Many developers and users complained about that but no reasonable response from Google.
