Even if the downloads were legit ~ IT types and users in general making sure their butts are covered ~ That kind of headline is viral. Damage done.
Don't get me wrong, I'll bet good money 7 isn't gonna do much for the MS cachet, but this is one of those instances where Any Publicity is Good Publicity doesn't apply. Pffft, they deserve it ~ All these years and billions of dollars and they still have a crappy business model/product.

I have reached the point with restoring my programs that I am able to return to editing SHAKSPER digests and distributing them to the members. Sorry again for the interruption.
One consequence of my recent adventure is that I have become, in the past few weeks, intimately knowledgeable of Windows 7, having recovered from more kinds of difficulties than I could have imagined possible.
To dwell upon the positive side of my most recent adventure, however, I would like to offer my now considerable knowledge of this operating system with any member needing assistance installing, configuring, or repairing newly upgraded Windows 7 computers. I am amazed at how many obstacles I have overcome and rather than just letting this knowledge go to waste I am making this offer.
