    I think it will depend on three things:

    1. Did they do sufficient beta testing to work out the bugs?

    2. How they handle a glut of newly found bugs.

    3. How aggressively they market the product to take shares away from competitors.

    If they do all the above, and ensure ALL heuristics have been solved, they will become Righteous Rockets once again.

    For now, it is far too early to tell.
