Microsoft sucks, on so many levels. In their latest anti-piracy scheme, they've managed to screw over all of their largest customers.
Corporations using the Select version of Office, which includes a site distribution license to eliminate the need for individually registering each installed copy of Office, have recently been hit by a bug that's prompting users to register Office with Microsoft. Of course, this is precisely what the Select version is supposed to get rid of.
But wait, it gets better.
When prompted to register, you can select "Remind me later." Well guess what? You can only select this 50 times, and then Office will refuse to load.
But wait, it gets even better!
Becuase of another known bug, the registration wizard will refuse to start after the 50th try! So, now users are unable to use Office at all, nor can they register it to enable it again.
So why am I posting this on my site?
Guess who discovered the problem affected a certain "Select" corporate customer that signs his paycheck.
