The economy cannot be that bad, and the layoffs at Sun cannot be that bad off if they still can afford to have marketing people like this working for them...

Sorry Danno, that was sarcasm. I was just trying to get random user feedback for 3.4. As for my research efforts, I found your page didn't I? Once again, sorry for any inconvience and the taking of your time.

I feel the best thing that can be done is that the marketing team can do their homework a bit better...

(a) My name is Danno, not Dannon (I am not a yogurt)
(b) The only problems I described in that web log entry were with my Replay TV, not NetBeans. In fact I discussed the GUI designer in that entry and nothing about startup.

Hello Dannon,  I just came across your site at where you mentioned NetBeans 3.4.  I work for NetBeans marketing and I was wondering how you like it?  As I understand you have a bit of a problem (mildly said) with the startup.  Can you tell me a bit about how you use it, plus some positive and negitive aspects of 3.4?  Your help would be appreciated.

The "apology" he offered came across like "don't let the door hit you in the butt when you stop using netbeans."
