In that respect using windows is much like driving a Ferrari. You need to have two of them: one to drive while the other one is in the shop. Or atleast so richer folk than me say.
Anywho, this is more of a general rant for the benefit of mankind than a sneaky way to get free support with my specific case. (IMHO, ofcourse)
Am I the only one who think this is frustrating?
How do you guys at Microsoft handle problems with your own computers? Do you just give up and reinstall like the rest of us when the going gets tough? What do you tell your parents when they call and ask for your advice* on some mysterious error with code X
in the event log?
