Microsoft's Partner Site Needs to Get With the Program

I've never been impressed with the Microsoft Partner Program Web site. It's one of those sites that gives you the feeling that you're missing out on resources that you're entitled to just because the site is so poorly organized. Never a good thing.

Here's my latest gripe with the site. I'm testing Windows Internet Explorer 7.0 Beta 2, which I like very much. I tried to follow a link for a new OEM System Builder blog, and I got this warning message:

"You are using an unsupported Internet browser. Please use the most recent non-beta version of Internet Explorer to access this page. If you continue you will likely experience performance issues. Please download this supported version or proceed to the PMC page you requested."

An acceptable warning from anyone but Microsoft. Sheesh!
