Well, in some cases we're just voicing opinions.
The OP states he hates VDJ, but you state you have no issues with VDJ.
I have never liked Mark of the Unicorn products. Hard to use, poor support, non-intuitive. But that's change. Even so, they've remained in business and continue to put out some decent products. Will I ever buy their gear? Probably never.
What one user likes, another user may hate. Like digital audio desks. I finally found one that works the way I work, and fortunately it's my favorite brand: Allen & Heath. But if I could afford a Midas Pro 6 or preferably an XL8, I'd drop everything to learn that.
