I miss JASC.

Nothing to do with chess at all, so sorry to bore you :p

I just wanted to vent my frustration with Corel.  They are pathetic.  JASC produced this awesome software called PaintShop Pro.  I bought version 7.  I love it.  Simple, fast, powerful, cheap. 

Then stupid Corel comes along, and like so many other takeovers that go on, Corel took Paintshop Pro and releast a new version, supposedly better.  But it stinks.  They got rid of the animationshop, make it take ages to load and basically turned it into garbage.

Small companies should RESIST the urge to snap up the big $$ offer from monopolistic companies and look after their customers! 

Jasc, Paintshop Pro 7 = great software
Corel, Paintshop Pro 10 = the pits.

In this case, resistance is NOT futile!

Thanks for reading :)
