I was actually just talking about this with some coworkers of mine.
If you ever work with any other system, then work with Windows, it's shocking how silly and ridiculous it is. You can't "see" anything. It's like they wanted to mock people for choosing the GUI.
I love how you frequently go to this - they must want to mock people..
Because it's one of the few logical, and consistent potential reasonings. Why do you find it strange, when it's way more viable and logical than thinking Microsoft is just bad at what they do?
Sure - they might just be bad at what they do. But that doesn't mean they are purposefully mocking people.
@scottalanmiller is giving them more credit than you are. He's assuming they are competent at least. Which one could only logically reason that they are having a good joke on us.
