Very childish. If you want it to change, you have to say more then
"it sucks". Saying it is different from what you are used to using
is not going to cut it either.

Now, if you say it is lacking some features, and are specific,
that will help. If you file a feature request, that will help
more. But if you really want to make sure you get the feature you
want, submit a patch that implements it.

Remember, the developers are going to work on what interests them,
and/or what they use. So if there isn't a developer interested in
the feature you want, you may end up having to pay someone to
write the code.

At least you have options on making a change. On closed source
software, you only have the option of complaining, and unless you
are a large user, they are not going to listen.
