Maybe this pace of development is to be expected. I have to say that I was hoping more people would show interest in these issues - especially on Reddit where I first posted. Of course I realize that one voice in a forum represents a larger number of unspoken, but similarly minded people out there, but countering that is the argument that forums are mostly frequented by people who have a beef. The sad fact is that people, largely, put up with certain technology quirks (even when these could be reasonably/quickly addressed) because they don't know any better. I'm thinking specifically of the large number of users I've seen over the years when CRTs were in use, who would put up with a flickering 60 Hz refresh rate when the monitor could support higher, but the default was 60 Hz. In a similar vein, I can see these users asking "What do you mean there's something that could be improved here? I can draw lines on a screen with a pen!" They are sufficiently happy they can do that - refinements are frills. It seems that only when a problem affects functionality to the point of a feature being almost or totally unusable (see the huge number of complaints about wi-fi problems with the SP3) do you see a large number of people standing up to complain and something being done about it in a reasonably short time.
