[Bill Davis] "Oh. Then you're NOT a software engineer. And as such, what you're saying about the software engineering in X is simply unsupported opinion. Fine. Now I can assign the appropriate weight to your opinions on that particular topic.

You do know that's a silly statement.

[Bill Davis] Actually, I too use a lot of Apple software. I seldom find it to be "buggy." Perhaps I and the hundreds of millions of other people on the planet who keep rewarding Apple with their purchases are just unable to see the flaws that annoy you so. "

See, Bill, unlike you, it seems I am capable to give Apple credit for stuff where credit is due, and critique where that is due. You simply think everything is top and golden.
I can give you lots of things I like about X and OSX, at the same time I can give you lots that is broken and braindead. Same for Windows, Avid, Adobe and tons of other apps.

An application corrupting projects under not precisely known circumstances is, presumably not only in my book, bad engineering and needs to be fixed. If you think it takes a software engineer to figure that out... well...
I can go on about bugs and issues, spinning beachballs, memory leaks, Soundtrack Pro, DVDSTP, Motion, Compressor & Qmaster, itunes, Quicktime, Lion Server, Samba but there is no point because you don't want to hear it. Look at some non-Apple centric forums and read up on the implementations of Lion Server, bring some beer, popcorn and have fun because you're in for a wild ride.

And I am not saying by any means that Apple are alone in this boat; there is tons of sloppy software out there. It's just that they aren't really any better and they, too, only cook with water.
Apple are just different with great marketing, twisting reality quite a bit and a huge number of people happy to come back for round 2 after having been burned. To me, that's an admirable persistance but not rational and I don't really understand it.

And about the "the hundreds of millions of other people on the planet who keep rewarding Apple with their purchases are just unable to see the flaws that annoy you so. "... c'mon, Bill, you cannot possible think this is a serious statement.

"You also agree that you will not use these products for... the development, design, manufacture or production of nuclear, missiles, or chemical or biological weapons."
