Why not have separate newsgroups for WLMD and Windows Mail?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by Bradley Bridgewater, Jun 26, 2006.

  1. It's confusing enough to have multiple products with overlapping
    functionality; just plain annoying to have to sift through messages about
    one product when trying to find information about the other.

    You won't get any argument from me, and I suspect all others attempting to help
    and share here are of the same mind. It is confusing, to say the least. However,
    we'll deal with it.

  4. And add to that the confusion over names.

    Adding to that is the fact that every time I see "WLMD" I think the post has
    gone political and is talking about another kind of "Weapon of Mass
    Destruction"! <s>

  6. The MVPs have complained about it, and they are going to do nothing as
    usual.

    When I heard OE was changed to Windows Mail I rejoiced that the confusion
    over Outlook Express and Outlook would end. I guess I was premature in my
    rejoicing.

    Well, I think the MS programmers should switch to using another language.
    There must be a lot of languages available with more words than English.
    Using that multi-worded language there would be so many new ways to name
    things so we would not have had to deal with OUTLOOK and OUTLOOK Express,
    Windows EXPLORER and Internet EXPLORER (and now with Vista, how many other
    EXPLORERS). Maybe we could even find a better word than "click". Mine
    doesn't actually make any noise. We could even have separate words for
    right click and left click so it wouldn't be necessary to specify that when
    you are working with a Windows neophyte over the telephone and attempting to
    help them solve a problem. Maybe a left click could be "push" and a right
    click could be "shove".

  12. Its not fair to blame the programmers or the English language for marketing
    stupidity.
