Ask Slashdot: Dealing With an Unresponsive Manufacturer Who Doesn't Fix Bugs?

Ukab the Great Your bed, lie in it. (204 comments)

While I agree with gist of your sentiment, you're making the assumption that the submitter was able to make the choice of vendor. Not all of us get to choose which technologies we're required to support. Maybe a pointy-haired boss told the guy to go with the vendor because his buddy, the vendor's CEO, let's him win at golf.
