I can only wonder what it'll take, when will companies like EA actually get a clue, and realize that they are completely ruining many loyal customers experience. It's not even just the customers they will loose, or the increased support costs they face, but the simple fact that they don't care in the least bit about their customers actually having a positive experience with their programs.
Why is it okay for them to expect their customers to completely tweak their systems to run their one program? How is this even remotely an okay concept?
Why is it okay for them to install something that thrashes a customers computer and not be expected to pay the bill when it comes to them having to get it repaired?
What the hell has the software industry turned into? Worse than that, why are they still making enough money off this garbage such that they still think it's a good idea, or consider it more cost effective?
It's terribly sad when the people they are trying to protect these programs from, come out with versions that are way more consumer friendly.
Just a sad sad state of affairs anymore.
