Will they ultimately support the same operating systems? Are they both completely open source? How do the current and planned features compare?
- the core dev's GUI will always be more secure than mine.
- mine is portable to mobile and alternative platforms fairly easily, and feel more modern than something like electrum. It's also capable of being used as a personal web wallet for internal (or external) networks.
I haven't gotten a blessing from /u/fluffyponyza, nor have I spoken with the core devs about my project to get their approval. The folks on the IRC channel have so far been very appreciative and interested, but that's just speculation. I don't want to step on anyone's toes, and would very much appreciate a "cease and desist" if my project conflicts with the intentions of Monero. But so far I haven't gotten any bad news, but also no good news either. I'm not sure where I stand with them.
