That's not a problem, that's how things are. Talking is way easier, so 
it stands to reason that it happens more often.

This. EOD (End Of Discussion).

It is just a matter of realizing FOSS developers are normal people, too.

Maybe slightly more skilled in the ways of code and maybe a little more 
selfless or community-conscious than the average. But developers have 
bills, families, lives, they have to put up with their bosses/customers 
demands during their day job... They don't need more little-bosses 
telling them what they should do with their free time, thanks. One would 
think this would be just common courtesy.

Polite suggestions and feedback are always welcome, but statements like 
"Your software isn't as great as Ableton's and it should if you want to 
have as many happy users as them, which is surely what you must want 
(and, as a bonus, I get commercial-grade software for free, ain't that 
convenient?)" are open invitations for sarcasm, or even satire.
