Tech Republic Downloads

By DonLingg ·
One of my pet peeves and most hated aspects of Tech Republic is the time I waste trying to figure out how to download a program, pic, atricle, etc. that is being offered. Case in the "Microsoft Scenes screensaver and wallpaper program" I defie you to tell me where I can download this program. It tells you everything about it....even the install instructions but no link to download it. I don't have time to play these games ....keeep it.

Minor misconception

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Tech Republic Downloads

Just because an article discusses a program doesn't mean the program can be downloaded.

In the case of the MS screensaver, the program is about 15 old. It predates the popularity of the Internet and the notion of downloading software as a distribution method. In short, you had to purchase the box with the CD (floppies?) in it.

You might try Googling for it and see if it is available from torrent or similar feed. The usual security precautions apply when using unofficial repositories.
