Would calling someone a persistent (albeit articulate) whiner be classified as an 'angry response'?

Perhaps reactions depend on perceived motivation. If you perceive whining, that's how you will reasonably react.

Originally posted by Ralph:
My take on "Too Long" would be when all work on the MA3 has been abandoned.  
Most of us are here because we want to help MA3 succeed, to the maximum extent possible. We approach that "help" from our background and experience.

From that experience, many folks indicate that the way to have MA3 succeed is to just wait.

My experience in software development and marketing suggests:

A. As Jim says, nothing is ever finished - there are always new features promised, there are always bugs, and there are always improvements that can be made.

B. That means new releases. But, if it's a long time between releases, people tend to believe that (as Ralph's reply suggests) the product has been abandoned. The longer the time, the more interest fades.

C. Conversely, every time there is a new release, interest (and sales) pick up because of word-of-mouth. It matters very little what was improved in the release.

D. Without release targets, developers (who are all artists) strenuously resist doing a release - there is always something that needs to be done before release.

Now, that's from my experience. On the other hand, each software product is different, has different audiences, and requires different "release schedule" targets. Picking the correct target is hard work. It is always easier to not have a target.

It was my thinking that the fan base, represented here, could perhaps answer the question of what should be the "target release schedule" for MA3.

Perhaps I was wrong to ask. Perhaps the answer really is "whenever".

Dale,

The answer is "When Jim wants it to be." If you can't live with that answer then you need to rethink your membership on this forum.

This question has been broached several times by you, and I'm getting tired of hearing it. You have your answer. No one forces you to come here, either abide by the way things are done or choose not to come back. Either way, stop this avenue of posting.

Yep - it took too long. It's the end of life as we know it. Hopefully, eons from now, life will spring anew in a distant galaxy, and someone will try it again.
