Ignoring the answers you get and constructing straw men and in general
whining about things that aren't true is being a troll. You're doing
all of those things.

Sure, you can complain to them. You just have to know where to do it.

In your case, learning to comprehend English would help as well.

If you like it, use it. If you don't like it, do us all a favor and
shut up and go away.

If you can't use it on hardware you like, do something constructive
about it. Whining on inapproiate lists isn't constructive.
