To all you "smart" jags criticizing the people who are angry that they purchase a compilation of software products that says this
"Take your Windows 8, 7, Vista, or XP experience to the next level! The award-winning package that allows you to customize the look and feel of the OS, improve performance, and puts the full power of the OS to work for you! [Internet access required for initial installation and updates.] Includes a 1 year subscription to ObjectDesktop.net - access to new components and updates to the existing components."
I'm one of the dummies who also just today shelled out the $50 for this software to find out 3 or 4 out of the 19 or so programs in the package work with windows 8. You don't make a statement like above with this being the case. Yes I jumped the gun and didn't read all the details because the vendor is too busy pointing out the wonderful features to say that 80% of the software will not work with win 8. Even on the checkout screen it's still saying Windows 7, 8 compatible. This forum started back in April I think was the first and they said "we don't want to invest time into an unfinished product" fair enough, but this is bull and my overtone is that the advertising is deceptive". And Mizreal,
"Well some of us actually paid attention to the notice of all the software that was incompatible when creating the installer files."
Exactly how hard do I have to pay attention when I'm purchasing and it says windows 7, windows 8 compatible in the final checkout screen? You don't advertise a package as windows 8 compatible and leave it to the consumer to go to the specs for each individual app to find out it works only with windows 7. Your post is either because you're the dip shit that doesn't understand proper marketing or your 10, or just an ass trying to rub the fact that a bunch of people that purchased software that as a package is advertised as windows 8 compatible. 3 out of 19? The package is advertised as windows 8 compatible, that's the fact, and their out is advertising it then as a "subscription" We're not subscribing to anything, we're purchasing a software license. That made me leery, but I bought anyway. Point is, you might be an alright dude, but a lot of people are doing this, you don't see forums like this at a lot of software vendors about a product that is properly advertised. 3 out of 19, you make sure the customer knows the package they are buying, Or "subscription", that right there is deceptive shit because they even know what their doing as far as the marketing goes. I briefly looked at 5 or 6 of the apps and didn't notice. I guess all this time wasted just to tell you that you don't have to be an jerk, right? Or you see no problem in the marketing of the problems.
