Microsoft Withdraws Free Software Deal, Overwhelmed by Privacy-Hating Cheapskates

NotebookReview writes:

"We have recently discovered that yesterday afternoon (12/11/07) Microsoft took away the freebie part of this offer (the software). However, Microsoft is still running the survey and 3-month feedback program. This means anyone who signed up after the cutoff is still going to be monitored, but receive nothing in return for the forfeit of privacy. Microsoft apparently thinks your privacy isn't worth anything now."

If this is true it is a law suit waiting to happen.

Damn if they do and if if they don't.

act like they are the victims seriously all they had to do was honor their prior agreements to those who signed on, and remove the offer to future people

But no they didnt and they screwed some people over, they shouldnt have put up the offer in the first place if they werent going to honor it if i had signed up i would contact my BBB (better business bureau) and contacted msft and b$tched at them to remove my personal information this is just a big middle finger to the people they surveyed

only a very (and i stress the word very) delusional biased person would defend microsoft in this situation

Bladestar you are a prime example of "Battered Wife Syndrome" Microsoft rapes you over and over and over and over and over yet you still run to it and defend it's actions.
