So Don

I noticed this little snippet from Don Boxs spoutlet...

Earlier this week, I wanted to install a significant piece of Microsoft software on my machine. The first step of the setup program was not "Install" but rather "Plan." When I selected that step, I was prompted by a ~100K HTML file with all of the prereqs, QFEs and side effects I needed to understand before installing. Given that I have almost no additional time nor room in my brain to process this data, I opted to not install the software and instead dedicate that time to letting the product manager know why "he lost me at hello." Hopefully it will get fixed.

Is it me or is he getting just a little bit irritated with the pre-reqs for installing BizTalk 2004?

Of course this is all just speculation.... :-)
