Is Microsoft so arrogant that they think their OS is bug-free and that no one should ever need to report a bug against their OS?
There doesn't seem to be a way to report a bug against the Windows OS (no such category in Microsoft Connect). 2 years ago, I tried to report a bug against Vista - TreeView Indent in Vista causes HitTest to fail. The closest way would be to report it against VisualStudio. Surprise surprise, the VS product team closed it as external and did absolutely *nothing* after that. Sure, they redirected me to a non-existent website, which was supposed to be the MSDN forums, but that was where I was redirected to MS Connect in the first place! Talk about going around in circles... This really reminds me of Telstra (the ex-government owned now privatized biggest telco in Australia).
With regards to the bug that I've just reported, I'd expect them to do the same, and close it as external, not knowing which department they need to talk to. Microsoft is so big, dumb and slow that its right hand really have no idea what the left hand is doing! Sad really...
