I was looking for "Core dump" or "Excption" of "Out of memory" beers (that would probably be a rather strong one), but didn't find them on the list (Lilla Ölfabriken, Malmö, Sweden | RateBeer[^]). Maybe they'll offer that next year.
They could have a "Real" series, couldn't they? Maybe a "Basic" series of simpler beers, and a "Complex" series for those with a more advanced taste. I guess the "Bool" beer would be one that people love or hate. Beer that is sold in stores for taking home: "Reloacatable" beer. Cases referred to as "Compiled" beer. Homebrew kits for fermenting your own: The "Private" series. If they diversify into cider production, there should definitely be an "Apple" series.
I hope the vanilla mentioned really isn't there, not what I want in a beer. Other than that it sounds great, I love stouts and porters. Can you send me a couple?
Those reviews sound positively wine club inspired. Only need to rate it as a Man's beer, a girly beer or a beer for poofs.

Wow! This is what happens when a thoughtless design and poor QA combine to produce devastating consequences. MS seems to continually get worse at updates. I am already depressingly familiar with the annoyance of "fixing" broken updates. Now, apparently, I have to worry about significant data loss as well.
I truly hope MS finally learns a long overdue lesson. They have to get back to basics. Their update mechanism is desperately in need of a re-design. It's flaky, unstable, and now (IMHO) among the worst in the industry.
Also, they have to place more value on QA. This was not an edge case and should have been caught (quite easily) before release. Nowadays, they seem to use their customers as a QA department.
I think it is more a case of allowing sales people to make too many very important decisions. In other words, I think their priorities are misplaced. Doing the right thing does not seem to be in their top handful of priorities because it is obviously not being taken seriously enough right now. Then again, it is possible that my concept of doing the right thing differs from theirs but I suspect I have gone full circle now. I consider preserving a customer's data is THE highest priority and doing everything possible to maintain that is the right thing. I get the impression that at Microsoft the highest priority is getting the monthly or quarterly update out on schedule and I could not disagree more with that.
I truly hope that a major lawsuit is enough motivation for a serious course correction to occur there.
My reply was a bit tongue-in-cheek, and I agree with you to an extent. But I have begun to feel that Nadella and Company believe the Home user is not their real customer, as we don't make them enough money. Enterprises are where they focus their attention, and Home users are their testing grounds for Enterprise adoption. The real engineers have to live with those decisions, because the powers that be bow to the shareholders more than the market. Those 'powers' view the initial release as trivial, because it won't affect Enterprises, and will give them the testing for Enterprise adoption. Pretty scary/sad to drop $120 and be treated like you are only data.
