Microsoft's approach to documentation has got me counting the days (sigh, years) until I retire - and that makes me mad, because for 29 years I've loved working in this industry. Do they even care?
P.S. Following the tangent set by Infradeploy and lady_mcse: that is indeed a good book! One of my favourites.

As I express my frustrations, this thread is also making me think of the days when I used to keep gigantic 3-ring binders full of Technet CD's. They were a great resource, but I never had the time to look thru them all, nor were they all that easy to find solutions when you're actually dead in the water with some problem and people pounding down your door for resolution. At least now when that happens, you can look busy at yoru computer screen instead of looking like an idiot shuffling a bunch of binders and CD's around. (Wait, did I just admit to that?)

Rapid cadence. Moving target. Road map undefined. Misguided initiatives.

But are these problems acceptable from the worlds largest software companies. Its almost as if they are making it harder for partners to support their solutions.
