I would assume that those angry enough to cancel their subscriptions out of spite towards Microsoft would also be abstaining from using their software as well and are flocking to alternatives at this minute.
Oh put a sock in it
So are you saying that even though you are outraged at the MS business practices and feel they are handing this horribly...you still want to use their products?

What the person(s) that run TechNet and make these decisions decide to do are most likely not the same person(s) that actually develop any of the products. So just because someone cancels their TechNet Subscription does not mean they would stop using Microsoft products all together. Not everyone is willing to switch to Mac OS X or Linux/Unix.

I try my best. I just like it when a consumer stands up for their rights and takes a stance. I'm just always interested to see how far they will take it.

In all fairness though, since MS gave you all of your money back...did you discontinue the use of all of the technet software and surrender the keys? Obviously I wouldn't see anything wrong with using the MS software obtained from other channels

What do you think I am - a thief? Of course I surrendered all the keys.

That's not my point...but isn't it going to be far more expensive to purchase the software via retail channels than it was from Technet? if so, I don't see why you would cancel the technet subscription. I can see being unhappy, but this would mean you are unhappy and less financially well off. I'm just confused.

As I said if you bothered to really read my posts, I have an expired sub with plenty of keys left. Does that satisfy your curiosity?

Sorry, I couldn't remember what was said 16 pages ago. My bad, I did find that you mentioned this on page 3.
