This is an artful, if rather scary kind of op-ed, kind of fact. An enjoyable and quick read.

Definitely stinky.  At least the most common upgrades (eg: Vista 32 Ultimate to 7.0 32 Ultimate) are handled.  But even if they touted an easy upgrade path, I'll believe it when their alpha testers (the public at large) work them through all the critical issues... for free  Grin

lol general public beta testers..

i guess thats how apple beats ms.... they give a polished end user experience where microsoft throws out the guinea pigs to the 'free testers'...  not that i havent seen that shit in osx too... updates..

error reports...

oh yes, mac you are on the way to monolithic gigantic user base bullshit... as soon as you have enough baby boomers with bankwads the size of the fanbois market share....

Devilish
