Some have suggested we shouldn't be and be happy with the betas we are getting as it shows work being done.
Unfortunately thats a shockingly narrow view that doesn't bother to look at boxee behavior or how the beta's work.
The beta's do show work being done but unfortunately they all so show no testing being done and a almost complete lack of focus on the major issues.
The voting system sounds good but seriously does any think the pause icon was causing malfunctions in the box?
It was cosmetic and should have been very low on the list of things to fix but here we are.
People are really disgusted because of boxee behavior and attitude.
There almost no focus on major bug fixing or overhauling the outdated code.
There is no testing being done on their end and bugs that should never make it into a beta are left in it....shows shockingly poor programming practices.
The bug reporting system itself is a mess with bugs be closed or labeled fixed but with end users never seeing those fixes or having no idea whats going on.
Boxee needs to start acting like a professional company and not a bunch of grad kids still fooling around with a idea.
Major issues get addressed first not cosmetic stuff or feature requests.
You test those fixes before you releases them as a beta as the end user is there to help improve and refine the product and not to do the programmers job.
Unfortunately its beginning to look more and more like major issues still in the box aren't going to get fixed anytime so and maybe not at all.
This type of behavior from a company tends to mean they realized they made a mistake with the hardware.
So they move on to version 2 and drop any real support for the first version leaving the users high and dry.
Goes a long way to explain why there such half hearted support for the box.
Hopefully this is wrong but it not looking good.
And for those wondering if people are being whiny and ungrateful there not.
The buyers voicing there disgust and complaints just want boxee to live up to its advertised claims and nothing more.
This is something boxee has failed to do since day one of its release.
