Far be it from me to be the grammar police, but Microsoft has presented me with their own belt and suspenders moment! It all came in a dialog box as I was installing some software.
If you haven’t heard yet Microsoft has a reasonably good anti-virus package which they supply for free! If you’ve got an expired version of Norton on your PC or are paying for some shoddy product you should consider Microsoft Security Essentials.
A few months ago they s-l-o-w-l-y began rolling out the free upgrade to Version 2. Tonight was my turn. A dialog box emerged. I clicked a few buttons. Electrons flew through the air. Bingo. Protection is mine!
As the last step in the process I was presented with the pop-up you see at the top of this entry. Read carefully.
You’ve successfully completed the Microsoft Security Essentials Upgrade Installation Wizard
Sweet. I’m finally complete! Except the next line says,
Click ‘Finish’ to complete the upgrade
Huh? I thought I was complete?
Every night I pray these guys are better at writing code than creating complementary sentences.
