Well, that took longer than expected.
Bitcoin isn't perfect, but did it a lot the right way from the start. SolidCoin does things like trusted nodes and inelastic price of mining -- and already has one iteration that failed due to an obvious type of DoS attack.
This just isn't it to gain peoples' trust. Most rather live with deflation than mining power that has a giant jump when price crosses cost of generation. This also reduces adoption, because few people want to speculate on something that has an upper limit on its value. Many people get a sort of gambling kick from the possibility of the $100 Bitcoin.
