Everything (Microsoft Corp Sucks)

Update to Windows 10. Why the hell is it free? Microsoft NEVER gives anything away free. I've told everybody I know to not install it, but they keep getting nagged about it, so they play their dutiful role as sheep, and install it. So when they bitch to me, I get on my high-horse and say, "Told ya, asshole." I've been running Windows 7 for years, all updates turned off, and it's great. Still not Linux, but it will do.

Xbox. Really? Again, Microsoft does not give anything away, thus you have DLC's you have to pay for. Why? PS doesn't. Their content is available through achievements and level upgrades. And most videos played from the web on the box don't play because they don't use Silverlight.

Windows products are, for the most part, klutzy and oppressive. 99% of answers I need about problems I find on the interweb, without Internet Explorer. And I hate the forums that are invaded by Microsoft employees, Microsoft supporters, and... well, anybody associated with Microsoft. They're like the IRS of the technical industry. Instead of trying to make their products visually appealing to all the fucking FaceBook users, they need to work on the stability of their products. Microsoft does DAILY updates to it's OS? Really? If it's fucking broke, don't release it.

Office products blow. I finally got used to the Word 1003 interface then totally boned it when they came out with 2007. I installed a program called "menu" that makes the ignorant menu system in 2007 look like the menu in older versions of word. And, crap, ever use Publisher? Ever see a bigger piece of shit. I'd rather drink water in Mexico than even open it. Talk about shit!

What else about Microsoft drives people crazy? Prices? Updates? Installation? Support (I added that for grins because we know that's a joke)?


If I could use Linux correctly or even understand it, I'd be a former Microsoft user.

Good one Captain,

I wish the entire corporate world would remove their collective heads from MS's ass. MS needs to go bankrupt.

In the beginning, Windows was a great replacement to writing lines of Basic A code, and then, MS decided to automate everything. At the outset, this was a good idea. Today, (hello MS, get the fuck into the 21st century before she's over!!!)we don't want nor need all this automated bullshit that clutters up the works. Remember what Scotty said on Star Trek IV, "The more they tink with the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain."

All this excess MS shit that doesn't even work, serves no purpose to users other than to keep MS idiot engineers on the sunshine list (those who earn $100K plus).

There's not enough band width on this site for me to tell you what's wrong with Word. To keep things simple, it needs to be scrapped and redesigned--only this time, ask those who use it professionally what needs to be included and fixed!!!!!!!!!! A word processor is NOT just a replacement to the typewriter of yesteryear as MS seems to think!!
