Whether a dictator is benevolent or not, in a product sense, it doesn't matter much if the directions taken anger those that use it. Also, consider that the more complex the product, the more popular the product, the more use cases will it be applied to and hence, the more voices of anger when changes are made. This is also inevitable and has little to do with the governing body/dictator.
