Hey, there's really useful and specific criticism. "Sparse" releases? They have exactly as much stuff in them as previous releases (or more, since we increased the ISO sizes). Losing "momentum" and "mindshare"? Well, you keep worrying about momentum and mindshare, and we'll just look after our users, how's that sound?

Sure, who cares, I am just one more ex-MandrakeClub member who is actually happy to read messages like yours, it makes my decision to spend money in your company even more sure.

Of course there's no way to measure "momentum" objectively, but one thing I've noticed clearly here at OSNEws as well as in other places is that Mandrake doesn't generate a fraction of the buzz and excitement it used to, on the good old days of versions 7 to 10. I hope Iĉm wrong and news MandrakeClub members (or whatever it's called now) are flocking to your site, but I wouldn't bet a dollar on it.
