But they really are screwing YOU!
Hey, got the latest browser for your XP computer from Microsoft? Well version 8, the only one available and only a couple years old is not “standards-compliant” to handle your domain accounts. It seems Go Daddy is forcing millions of users, resellers (like WinYour.com) and anyone who wants to host on the worlds largest domain seller must upgrade their operating systems and install IE9. You cannot install IE9 on XP so the 10’s of millions of you on XP will now lose your domains, your reseller accounts, and all for what? To be told by Microsoft that you are running an obsolete system and buy the new one. To add insult to injury you can only buy version 7 of Windows and then pay again to get version 8 so that you can have a browser that works.
You can just download firefox and be done with Microsoft.
We have send an email to both these idiots to see what the deal is but they are forcing anyone with a Microsoft product to either buy a new operating system. But you can add another browser so you can have multiple programs with firefox doing the real work and IE sitting there embedded in the system doing basically nothing. We are writing Microsoft and Go Daddy reseller programs but find this hideous and possibly conspiratorial problem is screwing Microsoft users to add other browsers because the one that worked for years no longer does.
Take a look at the screen grabs attached:
Notice the Microsoft help cuts me off before I can respond. His book is closed and so is mine. I have firefox now, faster and easier actually and I wish I had switched earlier.
