But, if the point is to get feedback to Saab, why not...you know...write to them? There are a few software company folks who hang out in soc.genealogy.computing - one guy in particular used to catch nothing but a ration of shit, because there is one group of people unhappy about the fact that his company bought another software company. The guy got non-stop abuse from that handful of people. While he was the most patient person I've ever seen, getting that sort of treatment doesn't appeal to _me_, I dunno. I guess it comes down to this - maybe nobody has asked them to participate. Why don't you do so, and let us know how that works out for you?
