I'm glad you feel better. <grin> I know I do after some of the postings I've made about stupid Tablet PC program implementations.
The OS itself is not quite 2 1/2 years old. Having one service pack in that time seems pretty reasonable to me, especially since the bulk of that was for the underlying OS. That they vastly improved the TIP at the same time is both a real benefit to us and proof that they are behind the platform.
The one to blame about the pdf issue is Adobe, not MS. (Unless you are blaming MS's miserable marketing job, which I would agree with.) It is, after all Adobe's app that still doesn't support ink with, what, 2 version releases made since the TPC came out?
I think that the TPC is so very different from XP based systems that even Microsoft is still getting a handle on just how much of this is really new and different--and needs to be treated as such. Kind of like the early days of Windows. They kind of understood it (and were about the only ones who did) but it took them a while to get the apps right. In the meantime, Lotus and WordPerfect were on the way to becoming skeletons drying in the desert. (Though I understand that US Justice just made a major deal with Corel to purchase WordPerfect rather than Office. There may be life in those bones after all, even if it is bought with bitterness over a lawsuit.)
I can't explain the problems with printing pdf files to GoBinder or OneNote, not having done this myself I don't know how bad it is. But remember, Agilix is new in a new market and they have lots on their plate right now. This may appear to them as a relatively trivial issue. MS didn't even release the OneNote printer powertoy though I am sure Chris must have something going along those lines for the next release.
