Ouch, David. I sure hope none of *my* company's products never
run afoul of your engineering assessments!
But this brings up another issue that concerns me. This thread
is certainly yielding useful information for me personally
(being involved in PCI chip development) and so I assume that
others are finding it useful as well.
However, I find myself uncomfortable with the idea that this
list will be used to publicly criticize another company's
products in a public way. Certainly this has been done before,
both here and in places like USENET, but I have to wonder if
this kind of discussion is more divisive than productive.
Hard line position: Well, if you don't like it, don't
make crappy products and then try to spin doctor them.
Soft line: This is better done in private e-mail, and
in public talk about it in a generic way, at least until
the defendant company comes up and names itself.
I can see it either way. What does the rest of this group
