Hi, My name is Glen and I am addicted to beta software.
My latest fix comes from Office 2010. Even before the official beta program, a version of it was leaked to the web. Waht does Microsoft expect me to do? Ignore the leaked version!? Are they insane. Of course, I found it and installed it. I was COMPELLED to install it.
So far, it has been pretty good. I am impressed. Then the other day, I got a warning. Here is what it looks like today:
Ok, several problems. First the obvious. Are you serious?? You are going to make me uninstall Office 2010 and revert back to *shudder* released software Office 2007? Man, I would rather find some ridiculously bad beta of open source office or something. How am I going to get my fix? Please Microsoft, stop being babies and just let us use whatever beta crap you have. I am going to buy 6 licenses of Windows 7 and at least 2 licenses of Office 2010 when it comes out. What the hell do you want from me? All I ask is that you let me use the betas for as much as I want.
Second problem. There is actually no way to activate this software, even if I wanted to. I searched. There is no “Activate Now” button.
Third problem. The link “Learn More about Activation” is broken. It doesn’t even go anywhere.
Come on Microsoft. Give a poor addict a little love.
