gaussflayer and Manaburn:
Please have a look at the post that started this thread. It contains a clear commitment to making 2.0 available for EU within days - that was 3 weeks ago. Not a legal commitment, and there is no legal obligation to produce and release anything at all, I'm aware of this. But it motivated me to purchase EU, believe it or not.
I can't see an insult in ASKING people for a status update. Or do you expect me to assume that people's words are not meant seriously? After all, they DID tell us that 2.0 would become available for EU customers within a few days, didn't they?
Please understand that I'm showing respect for them by asking. And I'm giving feedback to publishers and developers how I feel about their communication with me.
In my business life, I'm an experienced project manager. I know that unforeseen things can and do happen. But I have also learnt, sometimes the hard way, to take communication and expectation management very serious. To tell people, day by day, things would happen "very soon" or so, creates expectations, and sooner or later, disappointment, if you don't fulfill. And to be silent makes people feel neglected and it makes them think about what might cause the silence. By telling people honestly, what's happening and what they can expect from you, you manage the process and minimize the risk that people feel neglected (one of the worst mistakes in human communications you can make, believe me).
My life doesn't depend on the availability of EU 2.0. But maybe my willingness to invest in Stardock products? I could have waited silently, maybe grudgingly, and drawn my conclusions ... But I preferred to tell Stardock what's on my mind. Not humbly and devotely enough in your eyes? Shame on me!
