Hey there, I know this probably isn't the right forum for this, but I have a question, and I hope someone can give me a good answer ( ) Microsoft is a massive corporation. They are worth god-knows how many billions of dollars and employ hundreds of thousands of people. Why on earth is their software so bad? I'm not trying to start a flame war or anything, I'm just curious. When you have so much money and so many people working on something, how does it still end up like a piece of crap? It defies logic. Why can Apple make good/better software with less people? The reason I'm asking is because for the first time in a couple of weeks, I visited theregister (www.theregister.co.uk) and all I seem to be able to see is MS bugs and errors. Some examples: This story is about how MS autoroute thinks people can drive through the sea...hmmm..guess I wont be using that to plan any roadtrips. This story is about MS tablet PCs suffering a memory leak eventually causing a crash unless restarted at certain intervals..hmm- when was the last time I restarted my mac.. (ages ago // ) and lastly, this one: This one's about how MS SMB Server 2003 screwed up and sent out 6million unwanted emails..well done M$ So, does anyone know why MS software is soo bad? surely there must be *some* good MS programmers out there? and if there are any, what projects are they working on?
