Yeah, I remember that happened with SP2.
Dunno why they don't warn users before they force the install on them.
It's no wonder so many of their "customers" moan about them.

All I can say is

Linux with Firefox

And there is a saying that I learned many years ago

There are only two 'industries' that call their customers

users

Computers and Drugs Shocked

As most of you know, I start XP on Sunday's for the CC Sunday Flight and while I booting up Windows, I noticed the update icon flashing. I checked it and low and behold, MS wanted to install IE 8 BETA? What? MS is installing beta software now? HUH?

Well, I thought this would be a good a time as any to see what IE8 is all about and how CC renders it. Two words- Crappy and Crappy. While 8 looks like 7 which was sucky too but better than 6, it performs terrible at not only this site, but a few others I checked. At least 7 displayed everything in the correct spots, but not 8. I would suggest NOT letting MS install BETA software on your machine. Wink

Yeah, I never beta.
Forcing a beta install is flippin' ridiculous.
It's called a beta coz it ain't finished and they're not sure if it'll screw up your system or not.
The 'beta' bit is a vendor's way of saying, "Hey, if you wanna test it and tell us what you think, we'd be more than interested to hear about any problems you find without paying for a professional tester. But don't blame us if it screws your 'puter!"

A lot of folks feel that M$ production code is about as stable as most reliable companies Beta software. What does that say about M$ Beta software Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes
