Microsoft's suicide attempt
years of grueling research Microsoft's top engineers determined that
combining extremely expensive
OS prices, too many damn versions with all except
ultimate being crippled in some
way, shitty compatibility, an OS with a "pretty GUI" resulting in a resource black hole
which in turn cost people
more money to upgrade only to discover that
despite upgrading to the largest amount of memory and most expensive
due to it's being modeled on black hole
physics their computers are no faster than
before, they also made sure to make it difficult to use and find things, included a user agony and cruelty infliction system(commonly known as UAC), and decided that
to truly piss off admins that
running as administrator you aren't truly administrator.
Engineer1: The tests results from the beta testers
for vista are in: anger, frustration, and incidences of user on computer violence are up 300%.
Engineer2: wow that's better than
Engineer1: Yeah, and even better 50% of the test subjects committed suicide after a month of using it, another 19% went
insane within one month, and another 30% switched to another OS or stopped using computers completely after a month.
Engineer2: What about the remaining 1%?
Engineer1: That is made up entirely of masochists
Microsoft Engineer2: Ok then
we are good
for release, if this doesn't kill us nothing will.
Microsoft Engineers1: With our expertise
there is no way this can fail.....unless of course the majority of the population suddenly
starts getting off on self inflicted pain.
