I guess Ant can jump on this, poor M$
Class action suits suck ass. Nobody really sees decent money except lawyers.
Yep, fuck those shysters.
yea its a waste of time, every one that bought one of those computers will get a gift certificate for 50$ towards the purchase of a new computer, at most
Yeah. I don't get that shit. You got fucked by a company and all you get is
money to do more business with them. I got that from Verizon wireless. Only
way I could claim my money was to agree to 2 more years of service with them.
Fuck, I was trying to cancel my service at the time because I didn't like them.
Why the fuck would I agree to 2 more years of their shit for a lousy 30 bucks?
Exactly. Class action suits gets nothing for Joe Citizen. If it's really a big enough deal, the company involved is gonna have to do something on their own before it gets to class-action status. An example, was the Ford/Firestone tire fiasco.
Yeah, that happened with EPSON. The money in the end wasn't worth it, and fuck the "on-site" credit they offered.
I know it won't happen, but I hope otherwise here.
There was some outrage at MS when the early builds of Vista ran Aero on the Intel 900 series chipsets, and then they dropped it. Supposedly they said Intel could release the driver, but they didn't. (Not surprising) Intel then blamed MS back.
There's still a lot of Intel 900 series machines out there which sold with an implied Vista compatibility, not a Vista "Basic" one. This suit sounds like it's for them...I mean us.
True, I've been a party to some of these, but it's never worth the while. But at least some of these big corporations have to take it up the ass a little. I know it's nothing for Microsoft, but some of these lesser companies really take a hit.
I have never been part of a class action suit even though I have owned several of the products that were brought up. I had the Firestone death tires and they were the best tires I have ever owned. In the end, I got a free set of Bridgestone tires after putting 60k+ miles on my death tires.
Verizon has fucked me several times now. It has been almost 3 years since signing a contract with them, yet my contract has been extended three times since. They sent one of my business phones on my number and extended it and they extended my contract after I paid full price for a phone back in a October. I hate Verizon and if there was another company with even a remotely similar coverage area for me, I would switch today.
I hope Microsoft gets fucked on this one and I hope that a class action comes up on the 360 to make them send out a new one to every one who had one shit out on them.
I'm not sure they have a leg to stand on since Vista home is technically Vista. It may not have the features, but god knows it's just as much of a resource hog.
20 years ago I lived in a trailer park for 6 months. The landlord did something with the natural gas bills, years later the DA sent me a letter, yada yada I got a check for $300.
I liked the actual phone service I got from them but they just sucked ass to
do anything with. Customer service sucked and everytime I wanted to do or
change anything they slapped extra time on my contract, even when the
salesperson said they weren't going to. I went to T-Mobile. The actual
coverage isn't quite as good as Verizon so I can see why people that need
phones for business have to stay with Verizon. I can live without them.
If I end up in Atlanta and working in the city I am getting anyone else, but right now I work on the road constantly so I really need the coverage. I am a project manager for a construction company so I travel into the sticks a ton and no one else can come near Verizon for coverage.
wow, that really sucks. I mean the living in a trailer park part.
I owned a mobile home my self, hated every minute of living in that park
Seriously... what the fuck? The computers said Vista ready and they ran a fucking version of Vista. I wish I was a judge. And I wish judges could cockslap retards like these people.
My main issue isn't that it runs Basic Home, that part I think is bullshit. Basic home is a version of Vista and that should be good enough. The part I think the lawsuit should revolve around is the fact that a lot of computers had to have firmware updates which 95% of the population, if not more, don't know how to do.
