Microsoft may have tested the patience of users looking for a free upgrade to Windows Vista, but it seems that the firm finally has made a dent in the number of orders.
Moduslink, the company responsible for sending out the CDs this week sent us a shipping confirmation for an order that was placed on 31 January. It took the company 9 weeks to verify that two notebooks that vnnet.com purchased last December were entitled to a free update, print a shipping label and stick it on an envelope.
There hasn't been a single email from the company between the time that we placed the order and the shipping confirmation. Quite honestly, we'd given up hope. And judging from the comments on earlier postings on this matter, we weren't the only one.
Moduslink succeeded to turn a seemingly straightforward upgrade program into an embarrassing mess. But don't give up hope if you're still wondering if Moduslink will ever get around to shipping your Vista upgrade.
