Again, we are using the word "bugs" here on a one dimensional sense, as though all bugs were created equal. Is it reasonable to expect Adobe to fix a bug that deselects an object when I alt-shift-control-right-click on a menu? No, it's not. Is it reasonable to expect them to fix it when it crashes to desktop corrupting the file I had open? Absolutely. If we are going to have any kind of honest discussion about the subject, we have to make this distinction. 

Also, many bugs are not fixed or dealt with in the minor releases, but are addresses in the major ones. I find that entirely reasonable as well.
