I agree. Perhaps it's the feature bloat disease that Microsoft pioneered -
call a bug a feature and add more features rather than fix the fundamentals.
And interface design - that's for wimps, real users don't need a simple
interface. This is hard stuff right? So it should be hard to use.
I'll learn something hard if it has a payoff (e.g. photoshop), but with my
ss4000 I do the minimum in the scanner software and go to photoshop.
I enjoy your refreshing comments.
