OK, half of the world complain when MS incorporate free tools in their
products that are available commercially while the other half complain when
they have to buy the tools from a third party...
There is no free lunch peoples!!!
Let just say that at least they are now moving in the correct direction

I sat in on Microsoft's HFNetChk WebCast yesterday and asked the webcast
leaders if Microsoft planned on coming out with anything like HFNetChk Pro
but without a cost for their current customers. My question was never
directly answered and I dont know if anyone elses was either. The Q/A was
more of one of the moderaters taking all the questions that were put in and
summarizing with his own question to another of the moderaters. To answer a
self posed question concerning a GUI interface for HFNetChk, attendees were
pointed towards Shavliks HFNetChk Pro. As for patch roll-out, attendees
were told that Microsoft is working on new features for SMS. Microsoft
Corporate Update Server was mentioned (which we were all told would be
around May when they first mentioned it last year)and one of the moderators
said to expect it around May until another one cut him off and wouldnt give
even an approximate time frame.
For Microsoft to suggest that users should pay for tools to fix problems in
their software is insulting. Now that Microsoft is pushing security and is
even going to venture into the security market will we have to pay for
patches? The majority of the Microsoft security market right now exist
because of holes in their software. For them to start selling additional
software to protect you from their own mistakes is incredible. How does
everyone else feel about this?
