#185393 - Altium "bug crunch"
Responding to: Kalpak Dabir's previous message
Kalpak Dabir said:
Altium has a strange way of accepting bug reports.
They do not have a tech support who will accept bug reports.
Instead there is a forum, on which you post a bug report.
Then atleast one more user must nominate it.
After that Altium will review it and accept that it is a bug.
Then there will voting by other users.
Only when a certain number of votes are reached, will they do something about it.

This is more like a reality show than a professional software.


It's worse than that.

They keep thinking that users want to do FPGA development and embedded micro development in a PCB layout tool!

I made a comment on their forum about "core competencies" and they just don't get it.

Don't get me started on their "vault" concept. Or their idea of implementing a back-end database for purchasing and ERP. It's absurd.

The actual schematic and layout tool are mostly great. The rest of the cruft is for the birds.
