Milligram, I agree completely. Isn't it amusing that OS upgrades where X is based on Y, so X must be crappy is contradictory to application upgrades or game upgrades?

Civilization begat Civ II which begat Civ III which begat CIV IV (and 2 was not that great of a game). Quicken punded out new releases and they weren't given the stigma of coming from a below average application. New releases should be better than the previous release.

Why are applications/games held to a different standard than an OS?
