Adobe are trying to change
I've been using Lightroom since the first beta, and they have been far more open and responsive with that product compared to any of their others. The development team has been very responsive to feedback, suggestions and bug reports both pre and post release, and they've been releasing new builds regularly which is very refreshing.
While it's fair to say that these bugs shouldn't have made it through their QA cycle, mistakes do happen and if you install ANY new software into a production environment yourself without in-house testing (or at least seeing what other users have to say), you have to expect problems now and again.
Personally I'd rather see Adobe continue with their frequent releases than move towards a less frequent release cycle like their other products.
