Who Do I Have To Kill To Get This Fixed?

DesktopX is NOT XP Only!!!!

Saturday, January 23, 2010 by RedneckDude | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

I have posted about this before, but it really chaps my butt. So here I go again. ( And a redneck with a chapped butt ain't a pretty sight.)

I would like to know who I have to kill to get the Wincustomize Magazine to stop saying that DesktopX is for XP only!!!???

What if it said Windowblinds or Deskscapes was for XP only? That would be fixed in a heartbeat.

Yes, my product is listed near the top, I appreciate that. But at the bottom of the email there is a list of skins and DesktopX is listed as XP only, while LogonStudio XP isn't.

 

 

To me, this misinformation could, and most likely does, cause some loss of sales for Stardock, and some non usage of any artist's DesktopX work. No wonder DesktopX is losing ground....everyone thinks it's for XP only.

And the worst part about this is Frogboy said that Stardock was going to look to the future and phase out XP products.

Please fix this, or send me some chapped butt ointment!!

Jim, I think you have tried everything from what I can see.  It would seem that the person who could change that little bit of text isn't getting the message. 

Have you tried a PM to Island Dog.

The next time I get a skin comment, or a PM, or email asking me for help with a DX skin, should I start telling people "Well, if you're running Vista or Windows 7, then that's your problem. DesktopX is for XP only."  ? At least, it is according to the Wincustomize Magazine.

Really.......

We understand the frustration, Bud. Honestly. That's why the funny stuff...to cheer you up. They really should correct that, but to be honest, the new Beta is taking a lot of attention from other matters...that doesn't mean yours is less important, because it isn't.

You are 100% correct.  Due to the fact I run Windows 7, if I saw "XP ONLY" my eyes and brain would immediately be on to the next thought.

Loss of sales must be significant. 

BTW... I truly appreciate your incomparable skills and unyielding devotion to DesktopX...
