    Is that a list of request?

    Or is that a list of stuff they're fixing?

    PS. I like "(as in FireFox)". haha.

    I didn't have the ability to delete it (although I guess I could have edited his post), so I locked it so it'd fall of the front page.

    Thanks to Jamie for editing the content (although I didn't know you could do that on a locked post).

    It's always the same -- all the exciting stuff happens while us Brits are asleep.  Now, of course we'll spend all day wondering what it was all about ... Wink

    NDA? Now I wish I would have read it.

    There is a reason for NDAs. You can't on the one hand sign one to get internal information and on the other publish it on the internet afterwards. - was a stupid move...

    I hope they don't sue you, jamie.

    um how about some Clearification...

    1. I clicked a link about Early Feedback Program a year ago or something and joined.

    2. After my RC2 ran out - I have been on XP ever since(as i was never sent the vista "prize")

    3. I completely forgot joining this program

    4. I get a LOT of emails from MS *click here to see missing images.. bla bla annouce this..bla bla announce that - usually normal corp/marketing stuff   -  but this email basically said - hey here's a list of things we think warrant attention - and lo and behold - the list actually had things 9ers have been requesting over and over since Longhorn betas..

    5. My first thought was not - is there an NDA - it was HOLY CRAP FINALLY MS ARE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT VISTA!  HOORAY!

    6. I posted the email - with a message about hoping it was for SP1 - not the next version - but that even that would be cool

    7. I thought at last moment - hmm maybe im not allowed to post this - so i wrote - If im not allowed to post this ill  remove it

    8, then - i had to go out - and i didnt really think anything was wrong

    9. i come back - thread is locked - i imediatelly remove the content

    10. i get an email from Long about me posting it on his site ...

    11. i go to his site and someone posted in comments under my name

    12. i post as "the real jamie" that i removed the stuff from c9 - but i did not post above

    13.  I did not try to LINK (I need to watch my language) some nda info - i was truely EXCITED - about windows coming list of issues/features to be fixed

    14. I know it may be hard for some to remember being excited about windows - but i was and i posted it thinking - this shouldnt be in some silly email - it should be on channel9

    15. <lennon>Sorry if i was wrong - or i taken wrong or whatever. and now it's all this:|   Perplexed
