Microsoft would call this "a better story." In fact, one of the VB devteam leads
actually used those exact words with me, on this very topic. I totally agree though,
that calling the extra effort required for even simple tasks "progress" fits right in
with all the other Orwellian double-speak coming out of Redmond these days. It's sad
when you look to Microsoft as you would a politician, and often need to invert the
information provided to find even a shred of the truth.
