Back in november 2008 MJBDiver posted Worst network monitoring software ever he wasn’t happy with how Spiceworks worked,
After the setup program finished, I eagerly launched Spiceworks only to watch its splash screen and a progress bar trickle slower than molasses. I waited a few minutes but did not get any farther than the splash screen. That’s when I stopped the program, uninstalled it and tried re-installing it again, this time with the anti-virus software disabled. Again, nothing happened when I launched it. Having failed twice to install and run it, I uninstalled it for the final time.
Here’s the fun part. The uninstall program launches your web browser and takes you to the Spiceworks web site where you get to tell why you decided to remove the software. For your convenience there is a comment box where you get to type demeaning insults to the software’s developers.
What a waste of 12 megabytes.
But 4 days later he posts A response from Spiceworks.
I started eating my words from my earlier post about their software being the worst. It’s not too often that I actually get a response to a blog post from the very company I write about. I think it was actually a nice move on Spiceworks’ part.
Unfortunately, this response didn’t change my mind. I just won’t bother with Spiceworks again, not as long we have Symantec AntiVirus running on our network.
This all due to the great work of Myshell the Spiceworks community manager when she posted a comment on the original stating Spiceworks would always help.
Long live Spiceworks and the friendly community feeling.
