"They could be more customer-friendly.""The integration needs improvement.""The solution is pretty stable right now, however, we believe that the solution could be made to be even more stable.""There isn't much to improve. They just need to follow the trend or the development of other Linux products. Follow in terms of making the product compatible with new versions of Linux. They just need to include as many versions for Linux as possible."
