How confident am I supposed to feel that I can develop
and maintain complex software if it takes this effort
just to get started, which is likely to change
as well?

The smartphones - if they are to earn their name -
should just be small computers like any other (only
smaller). You should just be able to bring over all
your software on an USB stick or whatever, recompile,
and that's it. Some of the executables might not run
due to the smallness of the hardware platform and many
other such details, but in essence, why should there
be a difference?

If I ever were to use such a device all time spent
would be on things that are non-issues on my normal
system, and doing stuff being aware of such a thing is
frustrating to put it mildly.
