Well, I started the rant in the other thread and I declare total bullshit. I bought Windows Professional for a good damn reason. I'm a professional. And if I have to save all my projects because my a**hole stupid OS forced a reboot... that's just stuck on stupid.

As I said earlier, you can polish the turd all you want, and in the end, you'll have a shiny turd. Tell you what, go into the MS server room and start pulling power plugs. See if there is an issue.

As a matter of fact, I DO have damn good UPS's on my LAPTOPS (battery - more UPS), there is no reason I should not be able to leave my machine up for weeks on end. MS' position is total and complete BS.
