More suckness from Microsoft

Vista isn't even out yet for the average consumer and there are already plans for Service Pack 1 to be released this year.

Here's a "clip" from the article talking about how things will go down:
"So, yes, the still not-yet-released Vista has "high impact issues".

Testers will be enrolled in the Vista SP1 "Technology Adoption Program" and "must be willing to provide feedback and deploy pre-release builds into production environments."

In exchange, Microsoft promises they will have "an opportunity to influence product changes including the opportunity to work directly with product groups influencing their short term and long term goals"."

So Joe "IT Guy" Smith signs up to be a tester helping Microsoft fix their crap and make billions while Joe gets a silent thank you from MS? Sounds fair to me.
