I dont mind testing FOR FREE, anyone who downloads a beta and replies to the originater does it for free.
But this is far removed from who gets a >>>free complete OS<<<.
Ive got XP, Vista,7 and 8 versions, on different pc's.
Even testing using an old 32bit I cant see a free upgrade coming my way.
I agree with you for the most of it. However, are you comparing apples to oranges? I never knew an operating system that would kill or physically injury someone but a faulty brake could.
Side note, I didn't know companies had to pretest brakes. Isn't that risky?
And no, those are not apples and oranges, a product is a product, properly made, tested and by testing improved it's much better sold and marketed and even more important when you record gets spotty. (Vista, first W8 and few more that people would not let MS forget about).
CountMike, thank you for explaining that in more detail.
If those brake pads did not function, they could have had an impact on people in the true sense of the word.Those, being brake parts, had potentially much greater impact on people's lives than Windows could
