Honestly, I believe that kk will be the last chance for our device. It is amazing that works already IMHO.
Bugs fixing and optimisations are the meaning of this entire forum right!? I also believe this way of thinking (stop supporting an older hardware with newer rom dev)is very similar with what hardware producers are doing.
I would bet 100 bucks that if Sammy would develop KK ROM for G Fit, it would be the fastest ROM (well....if that's ever gonna happen right
I see kk run on multiple devices and IMHO it is the fastest ROM out there. The only real problems are caused either by missing hardware drivers or default bugs from Google.
So, finally, please don't stop g fit development of new ROMs.

I still don't think KK is the fastest ROM for Galaxy Fit. In fact, I know it is not. My own experience is that GingerBread is way faster and more responsive. GB > ICS > JB > KK in terms of speed and responsiveness. Now features are another matter. Some argue that KK is in fact a step backwards for customer usability. The need for the newest thing is not always the best thing.
I am not asking devs to stop supporting old hardware. But there comes a point after which no matter how you tweak some thing it will still run slow on your hardware. Witness the whole "my windows 7 runs slow" debate after Windows 7 was released, people were trying to run it on hardware that couldn't handle it.
I don't want developers to stop developing ROMS, I am merely suggesting that time could be used in a more constructive manner, to produce a complete, fully functional ROM, instead of chasing after the perceived latest and greatest. I would also like to point out that the devs here are hard working and do excellent work. As an example of this my daily driver is ElementaryUX, it is stable, and as far as can see complete, it also runs acceptably fast and it is not based on the latest and greatest android version.
I would agree with you, I don't want devs to stop developing new ROMs, but maybe just chose an android version that runs very well on our hardware and develop great ROMs based on that.
