This is the same flawed mentality that has prevented Linux on the desktop from becoming more popular/usable.
Instead of listening to criticism and using it to improve the software, it's disregarded/discarded because it's the easiest option.
"So and so doesn't know what he's talking about. Meh."
Thousands of beta-testers over the years have been completely ignored because a small handful of geeks have been able to manually fix the crap that didn't work, after the fact, and just don't care to put the time in to make it work out of the box.
Being a Linux Developer is meaningless if the product they put out is crapware.
