The Windows client is a dog! Please fix it.
« on: April 08, 2015, 01:08:38 AM »

Hi, I am really interested in the whole concept of BitShares and would love to become part of the community. What is stopping me, the ridiculous client that chews 100% of my CPU and all of my Memory. This is a major road bump to adoption of BitShares, I download a Bitcoin client I have it running no problems. I don't even notice it. I tried running this client on my laptop and on my server, it locked both of them up with 100% CPU cycles so I couldn't use my computers.

Please spend all your time and energy fixing the client first as this is not going to get wide spread adoption if the client sucks. I am off to BitReserve right now, I will be back in a few months just to monitor what is going on and to see if the client has been fixed. Then I might consider investing in buying Bitshares.

In the meantime you can use the super fast web wallet  at:

@cass
can you include on the bitshares official site the web wallet link (somewhere it get noticed!)   ;)
(maybe on the "get started" page as an option?)

He registered on our forum today. He didn't ask for any help or guidance about downloading our wallet. i suspect that he just wanted to make mention of "Bit Reserve" on our forum. Clever boy. lol.

Bitreserve is basically eGold all over again.  Its pulled straight out of the mid 2000s.  Its like they havent even realized that the key to digital currencies is deentralization.

In all fairness, who the hell wants to spent their time on forums trying to install software / get it to work / ask for help?  Only computer nerds.

Software should just work.  Thats it. 

If it doesn't, it will never gain adoption.  The OP mentioned a competitor? So what.  Their competitive advantage is that you don't need to download a clunky wallet.  This is constructive feedback, deal with it.  Just because they mentioned BitReserve does not make them a shill.

Why should anyone assume that a buggy decentralized wallet is safer than centralized entity?

To the OP:

The core devs have heard our complaints and are starting to listen.  They have held off on loading up the client with new features in order to improve the experience of the existing functionality.  As another poster mentioned, there is also the brand new web wallet.
