County, not Country.

Game on!

I'm finding all the outrage in this thread quite exhilarating.

So I'll say and do as I like, from the position of being pretty well-informed on what constitutes customer service - little man.

Stop acting like an inmature child and refrain from trolling!

Just wait til it happens to you, forking out over 500 bucks via credit card and then not getting the Product you just paid for.

I totally understand why these People are upset. Have a little respect!

1.ableton's website has been down all morning, if the meathead op seen that the site was acting up but continued to enter his credit card information then he lacks judgment.
2. if some one is trying to start a pissing contest by telling everyone what superior position they hold in their job they deserve to be 'trolled'.
3. im willing to bet that within the next few hours this impatient man child will get his money back or his license for live 9.

I must admit this an amateurish act on the part of Ableton. You'd think they would have anticipated demand and had the proper systems in place. After all they have had three years to think about it!

They probably figured from all the complaining leading up to the release that no one would buy it.

This sort of thing just happens on the first day (i've seen it happen at NI when they release a new version of Maschine and at Propellerheads when they released 6.5) you just have to deal with it, it'll get sorted eventually.
