Another reason why Windows 8 was a bad idea from the start. If people want to beta test incomplete/unstable leaks, that’s there problem and hardly a concern to Microsoft. I doubt that people would mind if they downloaded incomplete updates that cripple their system, as they probably realize the risk their taking. What does Microsoft have to lose? People’s realizations that the software sucks, possibly causing them to provide feedback?

And everytime these idiots find a bug or something they just don’t like, they post their negative impressions all over the internet as if they were using a finished product. Then, by the time the finished product is released, it will be very difficult (if not impossible) for Microsoft to overcome the negative image created by people using a product that was not ready for release, and never meant for general public use. Microsoft has to do something to protect itself from those idiots.

Good point. There will always be “this didn’t work for me, therefore Microsoft is stupid” people…

[QUOTE=TSJnachos117;2682811]Good point. There will always be “this didn’t work for me, therefore Microsoft is stupid” people…[/QUOTE] That would be most people.

It takes a small amount of effort to retry things, but it’s more effort than most are willing to exert … But should it?

The one major thing that Microsoft has over other os’ s is that everything “just works” …

That said, as pointed out above, anyone using Windows blue at this point has obviously pirated a pre-release version.
I weep for the species, over anyone that is using Windows 8, pirate edition, and have also linked their windows live/msn account to it.

DOOMED, I say…
