A microsoft product, not tested properly, telling you a more expensive version is better, and with little common sense, designed for hardware that microsoft didnt design?
So, its a standard microsoft product then right? This isnt actually news.
News would be if it worked and worked well.
so who are you paying to pick what's acceptable in this modern world?
and then. filter it.
do you filter on keyword?
or not, what else?
