I think with the exception of a couple of keyboard commandos, everyone knows it's the suits in power that are calling the shots. There is no doubt in my mind that the devs in the trenches try their very best to make a good product. I imagine they are caught between the bean counters trying to save every penny and the suits wanting a quality product NOW. I truly feel for them.
It's just the small number of arm chair devs here in the forums that are handing out the insults.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW, what a ride!"
