Its not fun maintaining them and stopping them from falling over when some script kiddy decides he doesn’t like your politics, though.

Here's a fantastic example. I just bought Star Citizen ...
Start installing it ... it crashes early in the process, so I start it
again and it crashes again. So I start poking around.
It's a feckin Electron app, node etc.
I had to restart the installer about 15 times to get it to actually
complete. The issues have been in existence FOR YEARS according to the
community. So what to make of that? The users seem to just make excuses
that it's "not their priority".
Are we to assume that they don't have a dedicated deployment team?
Deployment in a $450,000,000 software project that's both broken and not
a priority? What?
I dread to think of the crap that's been installed for this launcher. If
its not a priority for them, picking this tech stack and it's associated
issues is a nightmare if you aren't all over it constantly maintaining it.
