    Probably a good thing .. they need to relearn how to do the fundamentals. They cannot write a good piece of software if their lives depended on it. Honestly .. they are not that good at it anymore.

    Ask me about Office sometime. Worst install / uninstall I have ever seen from any software in over 20 years.

    I hope they get rid of Elop. He ran Nokia in the ground and now after he moved a lot of them to MS he says goodby to 12,500 of his previous employees. What a douche bag.

How many of your co-workers working with WDP?
Wondering why not even one of my mate under the building willing to give themselves a try having a copy WDP on their rigs. It also happened since Windows 7 made its first appearance. Even all staffs in IT office never touch the issue. ;) What about your co-workers guys?
