Yeah, writing groundbreaking software is alas backbreaking work. And personally I like the way Kolor handles this (except for the somewhat unintentionally misleading upgrade scheme). But by using a small group of selected users for feedback and UAT (user acceptance testing) shows IMHO they are taking the customer serious, a verry Rhinelandian thing to do (I'm not expecting everyone to understand this
, but some management training and presto your in the loop). I've seen bigger companies sell me (or better the big shot banking dudes who hired my services) software as RTM (ready to market) that I would not even take to the fish market (though it damned well smelled fishy). It's always nice if software actually runs right? And not in the form of a CD rolling downhill until even that crashes.
