perhaps they should hire more smart people and pay them a lot of money to actually improve the product offering year on year?
I totally agree. I would love to see the massive list of bugs fixed and (real) new features added. But, you have to remember this:
"The basic premise which you must keep in mind is that the
interests of the shareholders supersede everything else."

Plus, one persons "great new feature" is another's "useless waste of my money"; one persons useful feature is another's bug (*cough*linetypes*cough). Its absolutely essential for all to realize that they aren't the only ones using the program, nor is their work process the latest, greatest, and only True Path.
yeah, except when it (the bug, or broken feature) is acknowledged by all users with any knowledge at all that the 'bug' or feature is in fact 'broken'in such cases
the company producing said software should be far more responsive to removing said bugs and or providing actual functionality that the broken feature was claimed to perform.
Case in point ask a few Civil 3d users what really doesn't 'work' and or what is missing, it wont take many to get a consensus.
And to be clear, not talking about any form of 'wish list', just stuff that really should be fixed.
And I'm pretty sure one could do the same for most if not all of autodesk's' offerings.
Further when ones work flow, is more like a drunken country line dance due to the functioning or lack thereof, the software is at fault not your processes. IMO
And not to digress too far, I don't know of anyone that sees, linetypes as a bug, other than perhaps not to generate their pattern relative to the view rather than direction the stupid line was drawn in. If that is the issue, yes it should have been 'fixed' like 15 years ago.
