Microsoft Introduces Windows Download Center


Microsoft recently launched the beta version of the new Microsoft Download Center website that intends to be more convenient and easy to use however in reality the new website is a whole lot of mess and nothing less.

The new website is powered by SilverLight technology which is Microsoft’s anti-creation of Adobe Flash. You must have the SilverLight plugin for Firefox or Internet Explorer in order to view this new beta site.

For me the site triggered no less than 10 errors of illegal plugin operation by SilverLight on Firefox so once again I can say that Microsoft fails to implement the user-convenience formula and indeed gives users another reason to dislike it and its services.

    Well at first it is a bit confusing…but it is good looking though…don’t know why Microsoft is trying to create an anti-flash software because Adobe Flash works just like a charm 😀

    Adobe Flash indeed works like a charm, Unless you’re using a 64-Bit web browser. 😉
    Anyway, I really like the new download center.
