Beta Trouble

I apologize to those of you who aren't able to comment. I switched to the "New" Blogger in beta. The commenting problem is a known issue:

"Users who have not switched to Blogger in beta will not be able to login to comment on blogs that have been switched. Commenting using the "anonymous" or "other" options will still work."

Had I known this, I wouldn't have switched yet. Once your converted, there is no turning back. I have been working with the software development and Information Technology field for two decades, I would think that any conversion to new software, or upgrade, would include an "uninstall" or some kind of backout strategy if the functionality does not meet your requirements, but the folks at Google left that part out. Once you've switched, you can't go back to the old blogger. Yes, they do warn you about this before you convert, and I should have investigated the knows issues first.

Did you hear the old joke about if Microsoft made cars? I think you know what I mean.

If it ain't broke don't fix it also springs to mind.

The old thing about testing software before releasing it doesn't apply anymore.
