Normally I wouldn't come down hard on someone like that, but misinformation can spread quickly.
When misinformation comes from joe user 50,000 it doesn't go very far, but when it comes from an active and well respected user it can spread very quickly.
Combined with the fact he started trying to sound as if he's speaking on behalf of TurboXS ("our UTEC") it seemed even less appropriate.
Sorry for the hijack. I wanted to explain my comments and why I thought them valid and necessary. I will not interrupt further. I only know the basics of the XEDE, not the details, so I can't comment on your original questions.
