Its not the same anymore. Microsoft seems so foreign now, lost touch
with its support process, breaking things up so much you don't know
where to go for basic general Windows OS/kernel questions. With so
much increased compatibilities issues now that MS is forcing
2008/VISTA/7 and more quickly deprecating 2003 and even normal 2008
for R2 64 bit only, its becoming a very expensive and resource
intensive endeavor as as long time WIN32 product developers to support
the Windows product line. Going 64 bit is big deal and I don't
understand why 32 bit 2008 and at least 2003 is not in their forums
listings or support plans. I jumped on board and upgraded my
computers on my network the current versions, even moved to AD (what a
freaking complex endeavor for small Windows shops), upgraded to
VS2010, had a terrible time installing TFS and just all sorts of OS
issues, especially with the new "GUI" with MMC which seems to be a DOG
and aborts itself because it has to "wait to close MMC snap-ins."
(popups when closing various MMC) and then I gave to auto update, and
my god, there is an UPDATE every freaking minute. When does it all
end? Where does it become stable, persistent and all these things are
working together again?
Maybe I'm missing the boat, but its not the same.
