Thanks for writing such a kick-ass review of my program! You've got everything here, even links to the Lunarsoft support forum and that blurb about my appearances on Computer America!

Will something like this appear (or has it already appeared) in the actual magazine?

Unfortunately my subscription expired long ago so I have not been keeping up with Maximum PC, but it is my favorite magazine. It's the only magazine I know that doesn't contain bullshit.

This is also the first time I've ever checked out the Maximum PC website (sadly), but I'm all registered up and I'll be sticking around.

Cheers.

PS: care to donate a subscription? :D

For those wondering about why Windows needs 'third-party' tools, keep in mind that Dial-a-fix isn't really a 'third-party' repair tool using some kind of programming voodoo unavailable to ordinary Windows users. Instead, it's a very convenient front-end for known Microsoft repair procedures. Take a close look at the second screen in the article. It shows how you'd perform the same task using Windows command-line tools.

Sure, I can type in commands: I used MS-DOS since version 2.0, and taught my Windows 95 students how to use command-line tools to repair problems. However, I'd rather click a box and have Dial-a-fix do the typing than worry about typos.

It's amazing how illogical a business built on binary logic can be.

3rd party tools again?

Why can't Microsoft fix any of their problems?

Is this the only way of getting true MS Support?

hey, Windows may need third party software to fix occasional hiccups, but at least you don't have to compile you own software and applications. Hell,they found some lines of code right in the kernel with the phrase "does this belong here?".

Have you used Ubuntu? No need to compile anything there. And that statment is of topic by the way.

And Windows has ..... ???
Of topic again :)
