I installed PSPP on Windows 7 because my computer didn't have SPSS for a short
time. The deparment I work for hadn't purchased new licenses, so I thought I'd
give you guys a try in the interim. I support open source software. I use
Linux at home. Why not? PSPP worked fine but I decided to go back to SPSS once
licenses were purchased. Familiarity or something.

Anyway, I went to uninstall PSPP, and in addition to uninstalling what it
should, it also deleted the contents of C:/Users/my_name_here. Desktop,
Documents, the whole shebang. Thankfully not much of importance was lost, but
it's a big inconvenience to recreate what I hadn't yet backed up from the past
few days.

If you want to dismiss this with "shoulda used a free OS" or "shoulda backed
yr data up better", whatever. This is a pretty careless oversight on your part
and I thought you should be aware of the bug.

Hugs and kisses xoxoxoxo
