So do I.  I regret the fact that you had a bad experience.

Thank you for displaying a slightly more reasonable attitude this time
around.  We make the best decisions we can, based on the information
that we have.  I cannot guarantee that we will always make the same
decisions that you would have made, but, despite whatever you may
think, we do test things and we are not cavalier about stability.  If
we believed that Eclipse was as unstable as you say it was, we would
not have included it.
