Now I remember why, I do not have RealPlayer on my computers, by default. It’s the most obtrusive, pain-in-the-ass piece of software. I understand that many companies policy is to „catch” you click Yes so that their software can take control of your computer (or even don’t bother asking), so they can take some part of the market. But why, WHY, there is so many „strongly recommended” options that I should NOT turn of? I just want to wath a damm media file!
I’ve been given a media file, I want to watch it. I do NOT want a crappy message center – I have a life. I do NOT want ANY resident, all-time-running-not-doing-anything-needed services – I have enough resident software that is actually needed.
That’s I give RealPlayer a „piece-of-crap” award, and that’s why it’s a come and go software. I hope that this time when I uninstall it, it I won’t live some crap behind.
