If you purchased that software, for your environment, I think you have a valid point. If the version you got was open source or free without support, you don't. You might complain about the developers professionalism but you did get your moneys worth. Much of Linux software is open source and some developers provide packages for mainstream distros, some don't. If it is free and you want to contribute back (rather than just take), create a package for your environment: Windows, Mac, Linux, whatever and share it back to the project. I think a lot of small Open Source stuff is just "good enough", and escapes.
I especially like it when the fanboys bash something. Linux and iStuff seem to be favorite targets. I guess Windows is next. Not sure what the Internet would be like without Linux and I wonder if the Windows phones would have reached their huge success if not pushed by Android and Apple.. oh, wait. Smile | :)
I have an iPhone because it "talks" to my hearing aids. I have a Windows system that controls surveillance cameras (Blue Iris) and I have a Linux desktop that hosts Windows systems (even W2000) for development. I am happy, I don't hate anything (Well, Windows updates can annoy me).
Have a great day.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
