Every now and then I get frustrated trying to look something up to answer a question on the forums on the MSDN SQL Site, but tonight I have a new found respect for just how wonderful the SQL Site is after trying to find a piece of information on Windows XP. All I wanted was a simple version comparison of the features between XP Home and Professional so I could provide a valid reference for the 5 inbound vs 10 inbound connection limits between the two respectively. This however has proven next to impossible. In an attempt to push Vista, the site for XP has been made utterly useless for finding information about XP, it all repoints to why you should Upgrade to Vista. Try for yourself:
If you try to get information about Features and benefits, note that the link points to the Windows XP sub-site, if you click it, you get routed to Make the Move to Windows Vista and Work Smarter. It is almost impossible to get information on Windows XP, so much so that I gave up on finding the actual feature compare to rant about this ridiculousness in this blog post instead, not that it eased my aggravation any, but I certainly have a new found love for the fact that the SQL site for the most part maintains its content rather than pushing a failed release of the product line.
