M$'s very old stategy: People will buy new software to fix the bugs.
Problem:               People stotted the new versions were no more stable
M$'s old strategy:     Release version X+1, that will not exchange files
                       with version X
Problem:               People refuse to buy new versions.
M$'s next strategy:    All the programs and your data are on their server.
                       You access them remotely. It is vital that you
                       cannot easily get all you data off their server.

Since when has there been any reason for M$ to release good software?

Richard
