Thanks Blizzard. You couldn't put the compatibility check at the beginning of the install? I had doubts that my laptop would play the game well, but to be denied completely? And after the game was fully installed? That's just a fuckin slap to the face. I don't know why I expected anything else after having played WoW from the beta, but I expected Diablo to be pretty straight forward since it is a mostly one player game.
As with most game launches now-a-days, there are a lot of bugs. Why is this acceptable? Why do companies get a second beta period with people that paid $60 for their product. It seems to me that PC software companies are just lazy and will do anything to make their marketing deadlines. Quality be damned!
I dunno, I'm mostly pissed because I want to be cool and play with my friends. And while I paid money to do so, I cannot due to a hardware restriction. But even if my laptop would let me play...

The sheer number of known issues is staggering for a game that has been released. I'm sure some people will sympathize and say "it's a big, complicated world". I say bullshit. If it's anything like other Diablo games, it's a linear story with pre-defined monsters and dungeons. Everything is going to be located in the same place everytime. The only difference is going to be the number and type of monster.
Don't apologize for Blizzard, they are a rich company with many available resources. As with most companies, I'm sure development was delayed, thus cutting into QA time. QA time is not factored into the release date so whatever time was left over between those two dates is what they get.
