Siemens Sinumerik 840D??

I first ran into one of the Siemens Sinumerik 840D controls back in about 2002 I think. Now I liked the 840C it was well thought out and very powerful, but the 840D was a disaster. It was as if they forgot everything from the 840C. Does anyone know if they have fixed those problems? Also has Siemens really not come out with anything better in 10 years? Sorry for sounding negative, but the memorys of the 840D just makes me cringe.

This is a great product.  It is amazing to see what can come out of Italy.  This is especially amazing because of the political and economic system that exists there.  Of course, we all know of innovative Italian design and autos.  The link with Siemens is also interesting.  Europe can really work, if they would only let themselves.
