Open Letter to Rev: Quality Is Job #1

I just want to add my .02:

.01: Although the Rev IDE may be fraught with bugs large and small,  
the standalones, if carefully programmed, seem to be (at least) as  
potentially stable as any competing solution in my experience-  
(meaning Director, RealBasic, etc.)... and do a lot of cool stuff.

.01: What else beside Rev can we use to get the same results without  
going to C#, XCode, Java, VB, RealBasic, or other much more time- 
consuming or retarded option?

.01: I use a lot of software regularly that I'd put in the same  
ballpark as the Rev IDE- Final Cut Pro, Squeeze, SoundTrack Pro,  
Quicktime, OS X, Motion, all these have bugs like a day-old picnic...  
but again, what else can I use? (Not to pick on Apple, but I just  
happen to use a lot of Apple software, that's why the list is skewed  
a bit :-)

I use Rev, (like other software), because out of the available  
options, it seems to get the job done better than the alternatives...
