[joomla] Virtuemart -- anyone else having SERIOUS problems with it?!

Unfortunately Virtuemart DOES have serious issues. For one project in particular we ended up spending a ton of hours to fix it.
We've been working with Magento. It's a great product IF (noticed that big IF!) you will basically use the features as-is and just need to reskin it. 
If you need to do some prepared for a steep learning curve and lots of complexity.
