Jip, if you got something of value to add, I'm willing to consider it.
I did add something. I told you that you posted in the wrong section. I also told you that bitching about a beta is silly.

The fact that you can't uninstall a major microsoft program from a microsoft OS goes beyond the normal scopes of problems associated with betas. I've been beta testing programs for many years, and you'll never hear me complain about issues of functionality or design flaws.
We just did, actually.
Any and all problems should be expected when running a beta .. including wiping your PC completely.
Before you downloaded the beta, you should have read the following warning
Protect your PC and data. Be sure to back up your data and please donâ€™t test Office Professional Plus 2010 Beta on your primary home or business PC.
This implies that it is possible that the software beta has the potential to completely hose your PC. A problem with uninstalling the product is not something to whine about here. In fact, you should be talking to MS ... that is why you're involved in the beta program.
For someone who claims to have been involved in many betas, you're strangely ignorant of the actual purpose of a beta program. You don't come to complain on a forum that your beta doesn't work .. you report the problem to the developers so that they can fix it and release a decent product.
However, I will complain about a major omission from the world's largest SW company.
And I'll happily point out that you are being unreasonable.
This forum belongs to all of us and we're all equally entitled to contribute to legitimate discussion without personal criticism from peanut gallery.
Get off your cross. I'm equally allowed to contribute my opinion .. which is that your opinion is asinine. Deal with it.
