Aren't you glad that the furor over CBX and the 'Open Letter' have
completely silenced any discussion whatsoever about the use of Quality
Central, and the lack of bug fixes?

The discussion about QC and the lack of bug fixes to BCB is over, as far as
I am concerned. Borland has not fixed bugs in BCB6 based on the QC reports.
That's it, there is little else to say.

QC had some decent ideas behind it, but it is a complete sham, and a waste
of end-users time and effort, when it comes to BCB. If I use Borland
products again in the future, I will not bother reporting bugs to a company
for whom those reports mean nothing. I have better things to do with my
programming time. Let Borland fend for itself in finding out those things
which are wrong with its products.

I think QC can be used as a good refrence to make Borland fix bugs. We
have to make this as a community action. Just setup a non-profitable
community and ask people to donate (1 dollar per head) and then opt for
the borland's paid support with that money (~200USD) for the known
bugs . Since It is obvious that the bugs are known to be *in their
product*, , I'm sure we can get a refund for that support. I presume we
continue this until borland fixes all the bugs ;o) .

Borland's answer to each bug report will be, "yes it's a bug so don't do
what you are doing" or "yes, we see it, so here is another way where you can
accomplish what you want." In other words, whatever the bug, Borland will
tell you to do something else so the bug doesn't show itself. Doesn't matter
if the doing something else is 100 times harder than the normal way. I doubt
they will ever fix anything no matter how many bugs you show them in BCB.

I agree entirely with what you said. I have not run QC for a long time
now because it was a waste of my time. I suppose 'my' bug is still the
top voted BCB6 bug. It was a year ago :(

Regarding the OL delay, I guess if someone dealt Borland like Borland behave
with us (customers), sure they changing that vendor.

I had a "situation" with a DCOM application I was trying to
move to Builder. and the work around....

Use "the other" compiler to compile the original source code
from that "other" compiler enviroment.
