New Poll: Managed Code Custom Actions

I have a new poll, are you in support of Manged Code custom actions?

Note: I’m not talking about horrible Installer Class CA’s here, I’m talking about CA’s that can actually communicate with the MSI handle and truly support silent operation without 1001 error message pop-ups even in silent mode.

If you aren’t sure or don’t understand the debate, please research the topic before voting.
