I am suffering for you

Work was pretty frustrating today. I was trying to do real work using beta versions of software not due for actual release for at least six more months. Windows needed rebooting four times, which is a lot of coffee breaks.

I was using beta code because Big Blue’s general policy is to have internal users run the betas full time, so that we’ll find the bugs rather than the customers. I wonder if they do the same in Redmond?
