Any thoughts?

For more than a month now since Wacom released their 6.3.8.x driver, owners of the intuos 5/pro tablets complained about the shitty driver that made the mouse cursor jump to the opposite screen edge.
A very fucking annoying thing! I contacted the support at Wacom and they replied with a generic email telling me to deactivate my antivirus and shit. I replied back telling them to read my fucking email and give me a proper answer. Their answer was brilliant: switch to the previous driver version and that they will fix this in the next release. Impressive. Thanks wacom! This is why I bought you tablet, for the great fucking support!
But to be noted that the previous driver version (6.3.7.x) isn't available to download from their website. They have the pre-previous version 6.3.6.x which is shit btw.

A couple of days ago they released the next driver which should have fixed the problem with the jumping cursor... it should but it didn't.
Why Wacom, why the fuck why???

I even suggested them some ideas providing them feedback related to the shitty rubbery material on the edges of the tablet. Try drawing a straight fucking line on the bottom section of the tablet... you can't! Cause your hand sticks to the rubbery surface.

What is your experience with the wacom products?

Do you think you will make a Maverick for Windows 9? The preview has been announced to make landfall in late September of this year.

According to PC Gamer, Microsoft wishes to wash away the sins of Windows 8.

Yes I heard... hopefully microshit won't make the theming of windows 9 a living hell.
So we just have to wait and see.
