Why I hate programming (part 3 of n)

1. Matlab's inability to remember the current folder. Sure, you can set it so that the default location is a different location, but would it be so hard to remember the current folder when quitting and to automatically open that location when started again. Seems like a no-brainer to have some sort of checkbox for this in the preferences...

2. Matlab's default renderer's inability to handle transparency. Yes, that's right, I want to plot two histograms on top of each other, but the only way it can do transparency is to enable the OpenGL renderer. This would be fine if the OpenGL renderer could do fonts properly, but it can't, and moreover is unable to save images in vector format. (Don't even get me started on trying to draw patterned bars...)

more to come...
