How many chances…?

How many chances do you give a new piece of software before moving away? That probably depends on the type of “chances” you are giving.

If you are irritated by a new UI, then you can probably live with it? If the application crashes and you lose all your work, then you’ll be less forgiving.

Why do I ask this? I just started using Expression Design – in an attempt to do the right thing, and use the tools that are provided as part of our MSDN and partnership packs.

Firstly I couldn’t get the tool to do what I wanted with Gradients and fills. I can get over that, as I’m probably using the tool in the wrong way.

But then it crashed. Doing something simple. And it didn’t save my work. And I lost it all.

Expression Design – you had your chance and you blew it. Come see me again in a few years and we’ll talk. In the meantime, I’m going back to see my old friend – Fireworks.
