I think you need to read up on NetDevil a little more before passing judgement. This is a small group of developers who built the original Jumpgate in their free time out of their own pocket because they thought it was cool.
To respond to the GP and above... if you missed it from the comments in the article (and from original Jumpgate) the entire game environment is based on Newtonian physics. If you are piloting a large cargo ship with a full cargo load you have to deal with inertia issues, i.e. doing a full reverse burn at full thrust for a few seconds before you even think about docking at a station.
