Trusting Updates or Going to Open Source? All Users of Windows XP and trusting downloads from MicroSoft Service Pack 3.
Danger! Do not load MicroSoft Windows Service Pack 3 Update…it’s broken and will shut down many user platforms.
Well, MicroSoft just keeps losing confidence with its dedicated users. Now pushing VISTA and more revenues, MicroSoft dropped the ball on its ServicePack 3 Update, stranding many dedicated users. The recent ServicePack 3 (2008) update, is corrupt with numerous errors, bogus registry codes and more. The end result after you install is an endless effort to reboot.
Users should contact MicroSoft at (800) 936-5700 and standby for a whirlwind tour of MicroSoft’s outsourced techs and assistants…you will first visit India (tech support) and soon after trying numerous steps just for giggles, you will be sent to Canada next to re-order disks to reboot. But, it won’t stop there. You must again recontact MicroSoft via India and have them help you uninstall the ServicePack 3 and then reinstall the Windows XP. Another bad day for MicroSoft and another bad day for dedicated users.
So, why did this happen? Most common reasons out on the Tech World are: 1) MicroSoft is purposely creating errors to police its licensed users; 2) MicroSoft is pushing its users to VISTA; 3) MicroSoft has little interest in its Windows NT, XP and previous expensive systems and therefore doesn’t care if it puts out bad assistance.
In the Era of too big to fail, will MicroSoft continue to spend more money on PR and Gerry Seinfeld or will MicroSoft eventually fail. Let’s recap…outsourcing, multiple systems, need for new revenues, and fear of intellectual property loss as well as demanding license proof after years of use by its dedicated users – Right now, Windows XP – Danger! MicroSoft delivers broken ServicePack 3 and will shut you down.
