Silverlight is a lot of fun

It seems that after THE BID Microsoft is running out of cash. This is what you accept when you download Silverlight:

LIMITATION ON AND EXCLUSION OF REMEDIES AND DAMAGES. You can recover from Microsoft and its suppliers only direct damages up to U.S. $5.00.

But wait:

It also applies even if Microsoft knew or should have known about the possibility of the damages.

Thank you guys, I love you too.

  1. LOL! This is precisely the amount I once received from Microsoft as compensation over a complaint I placed some years back with their support team in Germany over the incapability of Office 2004 for Mac to work with files that are on a Mac OS X server (Office would tend to crash when opening networked files which is really stupid as from a Mac point of view, it doesn’t really differ so much where the files physically are, as the Server drive would be on its proper UNIX mount point anyway and appear to local software just like local files, too. Microsoft of course could not solve the case, but I wouldn’t let them go like this because I have a right under German law to claim for amendment of any broken service until fixed. They tried to bog down the case but I would not keep quite. Until I received some little coupon for even more Microsoft software of exactly that amount in Euros.

    Very interesting, so it must be a world wide directive at MS to get rid of any trouble maker by paying US$ 5.00 – are they insane or what?
