You're an imbecile. As of May 2003 Microsoft admitted it had a buglist of over 250,000 known bugs
As many of us who are ex-Microsoft victims know Microsfot does, contrary to your idiotic assertion, do its beta testing in public. Furthermore ou pay for the program and then you pay to get the bugfix when they raise the product point number. This bear in mind is for a product released 13 years ago.

No-one is 100% sure who has less buggy software proprietary v opensource. A recent suggested Free software had marginally mre bugs on release but bug fixing was quicker. Microsoft has been consistently slow with bug fixes because they have higher priorities, some serious bugs have been around for years

Furthermore you're blaming Sun for something that might actually be Microsofts or Installshields fault!! It may be them buggering up your registry.

Finally Java/pauker is free you didnt pay for it, no-one insisted you install it (unlike MS), the risk is on you dont snivel.

Re: Flashcards...
You made my day, I am in the fourth day of an upgrade from netbeans 3.4.1 to 3.5.1. I used the co-bundle. It was total trash. Ruined my registry. If a product in it's 1.4.1 release with so many users has 2500 bugfixes in point release there is something seriously wrong in the either software engineering or the production process (source control, version control, porting, regression testing, beta's, manufacturing). I am sure of one thing: testing is done by the public. Microsoft may be expensive but I rarely have a problem with their products... Not that I have any intention to start developing in C++ though. Value for money. You pay a lot of money for open source.

Every JRE before 1.4.2 was definitely broken.
Sun fixed 2500 bugs between 1.4.1 and 1.4.2.
Some of them seriously affected Pauker.
JRE-1.4.2 is the first one without a single bump
in Pauker's road.

Flashcards...
If you're new to the concept. It works! Want proof? There are +/- 250 programs for using them. Which one to choose?

Pauker - Java jre 1.4.2
source included, works
BUT
don't underestimate changing your jre
worth it you have 1.4.2
don't fix anything if it ain't broke, 250 other options

Vtrain - Windows+$
works very good, best value per $

SuperMemo - Windows +$$
has PalmOS sync + EVERY FEATURE imaginable
