That's like criticising a high class restraunt for not serving burgers. 
  If they don't propose to solve your particular needs, criticising them 
for not doing so is stupid and redundant.

Many OS projects have aims which they fail to reach (often "completion" 
is one of those) and it is fair to criticise them for those failings. 
However it is utterly myopic to criticise them for not reaching aims to 
which they don't aspire - like being your bunch of personal slaves.

It would just as dumb as me criticising you for not advancing OS 
software - you've never intended to, don't care, so the criticism would 
be stupid.
