I just can't get myself to use this thing.
I feel a force pulling me toward the [x] button to close Max5.
I cannot stand the program for more than 10 minutes.
Max5 is unusable.
It's god damned unreadable.
The pathetic text rendering quality causes my astigmatism to act up. I keep trying to focus on the text and I simply can't feel happy, comfortable, or make any intimate connection with the 5th max.
After any extended use, I get a headache.
Because of JUCE.
Juce is written by one man, and his text-rendering routines are nowhere near the likes of MSFT, Apple, or Trolltech's code.
It's not professional.
It FEELS junky.
So what now?
Likely nothing can be done. This is the sort of problem that doesn't get corrected, and follows a toolkit around for years.
Cycling made a disastrous mistake by going with Juce. We're screwed.
Juce's vector performance is near to 10 times slower than Qt.
I am very sad, but you won't be getting my dollars.
I fail to see how you could even dare to ship something so unreadable at any reasonable font size.
JUCE == Deal killer
