Oh Microsoft check you out.

SOFTWARE AND hardware and networking and console firm Microsoft seems to have issued the wrong release of Windows Vista Business & Enterprise Editions to its Volume Licence Customers.
From the original release earlier this month, there were problems that arose with the install DVD as well as the installed versions of Vista.

A note on the web site said: "Reinstall Required: If you downloaded Windows Vista Business 32 Bit in English before November 22, 2006, please download and reinstall the updated version. We apologize for any inconvenience.."

So? I mean they fixed the problem right? Besides, it's the business version. IT just sits around and plays quake if they don't have anything to do.

I have to agree, you can't jump to the conclusion that the software is going to suck because someone in the distribution area screwed up. With the amount of stuff that company has to deal with, things like that is bound to happen.

Yep. This has nothing to do w/ the software itself. HOWEVER, in response to TheShanigan whether you have good software or not, microsoft has never NOT gotten hacked. So it's nothing new if they do. I'm sure illegal gold's are running around some private torrent sites as we speak.

Yes, but the software has probably been distributed already, perhaps illegally in multiple versions. Thus hacks must be running around and already ready to exploit it's weaknesses. The fact they screwed up on distribution means nothing regarding software, however my comment was just merely a mockery of how M$ said Windows Vista would remain hack-free and would be THE uncrackable, unhackable OS.

My comment was but that, a mockery to the earlier comments on Vista. Completely unrelated, but attempting to strike the point human error and misprogramming will contribute to the hackability of the OS. After all, if the distrubution gets messed up, so can the OS programmers.
