I received an email from a friend and colleague today, here is a “most of email” extract:
I applied for BETA testing for MS, which is pretty good, coz then i get free stuff (good thing number 1), they accepted my application, and will be sending me stuff when ever the next beta thing is out.
I also got my hands on a copy of Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2, Billy Gates is sending that to me soon…….
finally ms are doing something half decent lol
Now, I’m confused, Most Microsoft software is annoying enough, and most Beta software has a few bizzare quirks, but put these together as Microsoft Beta’s…Yuck!
I can’t share my colleague’s entusiasm on this topic, and certainly will not be using any beta Microsoft software from him unless I am certain it doesn’t have the usual mix of bugs, quirks and crashy bits that come from that horrid combination.
