Solidworks 2010 is a piece of !#$%@.

I cannot work with this crap anymore. For about 6 hours now I've been working on an assembly, which Solidworks is succesfully ruined for the third time. Sometimes I open the file, and all the mates are "overdefined", even though I had been working with it without problems for hours before.


Now even though I have "don't you dare flip the alignments on my ^^%^%* mates", it's flipping them. Something new---that I've never seen---it's asking me to flip mates when I rebuild! Are you &#$&#% crazy?


So after carefully manipulating this assembly, I check it and hit save and.... too bad. A mate was flipped and now I have to start over again.


*DON'T* buy Solidworks until SP5.0. And *DON'T* get support. I'm not even going to try to explain this to them. "Can I have your assembly?", they'll ask. No, you can't.
