For as long as Crystal Reports has been around, all I've ever heard are horror stories. I've never heard anyone who was enthusiastic about the product. The anecdotal evidence has been so damning that, whenever I've needed a printable report, I've generated HTML into a file and ShellExecute'd the document with the verb 'print'.

I admit I've never used Crystal Reports myself. Is it really that bad? If so, how does it keep selling? Is it a case of "it's the only game in town, so we're stuck with it"?
