Just typical these days where software only seems to get worse and companies/developers don’t really care what the users want/like/need.
For what it’s worth, I do really care what the vast majority of users want/like/need – and I listen all the time. This is not quite the same as responding to every users wants/likes/needs . As the lead developer I also have a vision about what I want the software to do, and when that comes into conflict with individual users, well… I win ;-) I’m happy to develop features that only target small user groups as well, but not when it conflicts with the overall goals of the software, or the majority use cases.
Finally, we’re still operating with very small resources, which also put a natural cap on what can be done.
