A feature will be implemented if and only if there is a developer who wants to implement it, regardless of the number of votes it's received.

Which is exactly why open source software will never replace commercial software or Microsoft.

The answer or solution to the problem is to find a developer willing to implement what you want. Whilst I agree it would be nice for developers to respect users wishes they should not be bound to them as the users dont own the developers or pay their wages. Generally its in their own interests or their project's interest to implement popular features but at the end of the day the maintainer is the boss and he/she is no one's slave.

OSS will replace propriety because there are many ways to reach your goal - DIY, you can hire a developer, offer bounties or other incentives etc (perhaps OSnews can fund some of these from its ad revenue?). Perhaps if you take a postive attitude to this you might get somewhere...
