People are not happy with 10.1 quality and asking why we shipped it...
If you know project management, well, at one point in time you have to ship or you will never ship it (because of they delay you could just add these other important features). What is worse?
And yes, I readily admit that 10.1 has definitely problems in package management and drivers. But a fatalist attitude as in "should not have shipped" is not good.
