I run PT9 and it's great. Could you be more specific?

The DUC is all about problems. Users helping other users.
The vast majority of pro tools users don't have problems specific to pro tools.
IMHO

And for your info, Avid actually bought Digidesign about 15 years ago. It's only recently that they rebranded the name, and got more involved in making positive changes, moving out the old guard that was stuck in their ways.

+1

PT 9 has been pretty darn solid for me. Easy install, no issues. The new features are terrific and Tech Support has been more much more active in the forums as of late. Frankly, I'm impressed. In fact the only issues I've ever had with PT were in PT 6LE... but they were addressed fairly quickly. I even screwed up some KEXT file permissions by doing something stupid and PT didn't blink!

My experience with PT 9 is actually an INCREASE in quality. Working like a charm here. I was running LE for years, but it was never as painless as PT 9.

And yes, DUC is here to solve problems, that's why most threads are about them. The majority of satisfied users simply doesn't write here, because there's no reason for it.

And I think pt9 has brought people back to pro tools and brought in people that haven't used pro tools before. So there has been an increase in trouble shooting installation problem threads. Which are usually unrelated to the software. So I'm with every one else. If anything pro tools has gotten better since avid started making changes.

PT 9 & PT 9 HD have been the most reliable and nimble release for me since I started with PT 3.2.
YMMV.

I agree....PT9 is great and Avid has done a lot of things right lately. I am back to enjoying the process. Just having the ability to consider using interfaces that others use and rave about is great. ADC...the new Eleven Rack update. Stellar.

PT9 (and AVID) is just fine.
But a lot of people that are new to PT (Avid's "native"-strategy seems to work) are just seemingly not interested in reading README-files and searching the knowledge-based to resolve simple (documented) issues.
Sounding off on forum board seems to be more attractive.
