You said "We users keep asking DAW Manufacturers for more features on a daily basis."
These were the good days. Now we are asking bug fixes on a daily basis - fixes that they don't deliver. V7 Mixer was redesigned with each patch release (this to me is an alpha/beta stage software at best) and suddenly the go like "we'll release one final patch" and if you want more fixes pay fifty more euros and you can have 4 or 5 more patches that fix things (like what happened with 6.07 & 6.5.5.) Feel free to believe what you want but this is something totally not cool in my book either for professionals, amateurs or whatever kind of users.
