Description
QC provides an utterly terrible user experience: slower than a dog and the interfaces (both, web & client) are uglier than a mud fence! It feels so antiquated that one looses all trust/will before even having started...

It would be so _very_ important that an issue tracker is a joy to use and *efficient*!

IMHO you should scrap everything and switch to one of the great issue tracking systems out there!

I like your recent XE2 release and you were able to improve the quality in former releases.

Please do something about this embarassing QC. Thanks and have a nice day!

The web and the GUI client are two jokes.

These masterpieces may have been designed by the same people who have to fix the bugs that get filed here so they may be comfortable by the current quality standards.

They say the factors of succcess of a business do not add up but multiply.  So if one of them, say the bug reporting system reaches zero, you can do the maths.

If you (Embarcadero) does not want to replace the Quality Central with another system, how about putting the Quality Central client out as open source, so it would be possible to enhance it?

As it is now it works terribly slow, and the User Interface is not user friendly!
