There Are No Bad Applications, Only Useless Ones

There is a particular piece of software that I rely heavily on at work. A new version of the application came out recently but I held off upgrading until I was sure the new version was relatively bug-free.

I belong to a user group that shares experiences, problems, and solutions with other users. The feedback on the new version has been overwhelmingly negative. But to be fair, there is the occasional bit of positive feedback that shows up. I was particularly interested in this glass-half-full comment that came across yesterday:

"I like the new version too, I just can't use it because it doesn't work."
See, just cuz it doesn’t do what you want it to do, doesn’t make it BAD.
