1 Ignore everybody and implement what you think everybody needs (Gol)
2 Implement some of the userbase FRs but mainly whatever you want (Cockos)
2 Listen to the userbase and implement what they ask for (Offhand i am struggling to think of a dev that does this nowadays, Jorgen and Jules did back in their hayday)
Discussing ideas is one thing, but saying it is unacceptable that ideas are not implemented when they have ignored everybody for years and still created one of the powerhouse DAWs currently available, well silly is not strong enough a word.
If you don't like "Gol's Vision", then choose another DAW.
I think the issue is you're spoiled. I suggest you take a break from KVR and even the internet itself.
Do you think it's an automatic that consumers have a say in the way the products they buy are produced?
I don't get to chose which ingredients are put into the Double Stuff Oreo cookies that I buy. If I send Nabisco a letter asking them to consider putting in less sugar or more vanilla in the recipe and they don't honor my request (let alone respond to me), am I going to throw a tantrum and post about it on a forum?
Nope...I'll either eat the cookies they make or I simply won't buy those cookies anymore.
