Unbelievable (Microsoft Corp Sucks)
Just tried to install the Trial Edition of Visual Studio 2008. It is worth noting that I have a *very* vanilla install of XP Service Pack 2. The installer bombed out, claiming that a file on the install disk was corrupt. I tried to run it again. It bombed out again. A Google Search found that this is a *known* issue with the Trial Edition of Visual Studio 2008! The stupid bastards *know* that the install doesn't work, and they keep it up for download anyway!
Okay, I say. Fine. Microsoft Sucks. This is news to nobody. I'll just download the Trial Version of Visual Studio 2005 instead. Wrong. That image doesn't work *either*. Again, I tried it several times with the goddamned thing always hanging at instmsiA.exe. Claiming that it cannot be read. I'm sick of this. Only fucking Microsoft would put out two extremely shitty installations of their extremely shitty fucking software and not seem to give a damn.
I would personally like to beat down whatever fuckhole Vice President is in charge of their sorry-ass Quality Control division. Assuming that they even have one.
