In light of the recent kerfuffle on this blog and elsewhere about bugs in Microsoft Word (a recurring topic, obviously), I’d like to point out this recent post by technology writer Chris Pirillo titled “Users vs. Developers.” Choice quote:

[If] you don’t complain about the things you’d like to see change, how do you ever expect them to change? Developers develop, users use – but it’s up to both parties to communicate with one another. When I see a new piece of software that holds promise, I call out its shortcomings in the hopes it will be closer to perfection with the next revision. Programmers believe that they’re in charge – but I believe the true power lies within the user.
