"This is a letter I received about the service pack..."

December 09, 2004  |  By Ian G Morris

 |  Version: Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack SP4

Summary

...and Windoze * Sickmantec worth reading.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Do you want to join a lawsuit against the creators of the very fragile Windoze OS? And easily breakable Sickmantek?

Send me an email with your story? (Below)

Here is mineâ?¦
This a recent email to a fellow veteran computer consultantâ?¦

â??Why are you up this late? Mac guys aren't usually up like this so you must be playing a game?

The only reason I am up this early in the morning is to work on one of my Mac clients who has a pc to hook up to medical services billing...
After several weeks of doing machines like this... This is the last one... Each time you install then update service packs it crashes... Then you can't repair cause the repair floppy you took time to make doesn't work... Then you just go with a base system and the video driver crashes the whole config file and you reinstall... Then if you install Norton of any year or version you find it often crashes and you start in safe mode and then uninstall but the uninstall doesn't work and so you go into the registry and delete the refs to it and then it restarts and tells you there is a vxd file that can't be found... Well of course it can't I deleted it... And then in the hidden files of the computer there are still folders from Symantec that won't allow you to reinstall or install a newer version... Often you have to install it and reUNinstall it again... Downloading a further uninstall tool from their web site then you are supposed to download a Windoze registry patch to fix whatever damage Symantec did then you find that damages other stuff and you wonder why do these people not buy Macs???? Kind of like being a Christian and wondering why on earth all these people around here can't see it... Try Christ... Trust Christ allow Christ to come into your life... The grass is greener the sky is bluer guilt is gone, fears will be removed as you surrender to His peace and promises... And yet....
Still people continue to live beneath their privilege... Makes one wonder but the analogy is powerful...
Windows is a fragile and weak operating system... Microsoft and Symantec both should be utterly ashamed and yet we find no conscience at all
Only thousands and thousands of reference pages on how you can fix the problems they cause with shoddy Os and software and they suck the life out of our economies and meanwhile the Mac people keep on going...
I just installed the service pack 4 finally and now it tells me in a blue screen of death that a config file can't be found and there is an error in the software...
Care to join me in a class action lawsuit...
I don't like legal matters at all I hate all this modern attitude whole mentality of suing...
BUT I TELL YOU after dealing with this stuff I am sure I could easily get millions on board...
From all web sites dedicated to this stuff I am sure we could find many ...
I can reproduce this in front of any judge...
Exactly how if you load almost any security patch or update you will crash their own Os...
Nope won't boot in safe mode
Nope won't boot in safe mode with prompt.
Can't read the new blue screen because it goes away in seconds...
You wouldn't believe it if I showed you... It is so pathetic... I can see why people are making viruses and all the rest to expose what a terrible, horrifyingly wasteful, keystroke heavy, carpal tunnel disease creating, and time sucking system it is...

I feel bad as a consultant charging people for this ---in fact over all these years I don't think I made money on any Windoze unmachine that I have worked on.... Any it person worth his salt with a conscience of even the tiniest size should warm people not to use them if they really love their customersâ?¦ but then I have never once heard a windoze person say they loved their Pieces of c or even that they like themâ?¦ they are simply users. But I hear Mac people tell me all the time â??I love my Mac, I love my ipod, â??I love my ibookâ?? says one film location person and soon all her colleagues came and bought ibooksâ?¦ and it just goes on and on about as positive a story as working on Windoze dos mil or any other windozeâ?¦ with Gates and windoze who needs doors? Someone should cement microhard right up solid because it is a toxic waste to our society. They are a bane to society... Government should take action to outlaw these companies from functioning...
and I haven't even told you about
How windoze browser can be hijacked!
You download spyware to find it cleans some off and installs its own.
And just try to get rid of 'about_blankâ?? as your startup page if you get it.

And then I neglected to tell you of
Haven't once been able to use any of the emergency floppies created by their own systems!!!!
This is sick but then you know that
you work with Macs
How I thank God every morning I have a Mac!â??
