Isn’t it nice to know that even as the rest of us have to deal with his bloated pig of an operating system (o hai Vista!) and blue screens of death, Bill Gates has to deal with them too?

Subject: Windows Usability Systematic degradation flame
I am quite disappointed at how Windows Usability has been going backwards and the program management groups don’t drive usability issues.
Let me give you my experience from yesterday.
I decided to download (Moviemaker) and buy the Digital Plus pack … so I went to Microsoft.com. They have a download place so I went there.
The first 5 times I used the site it timed out while trying to bring up the download page. Then after an 8 second delay I got it to come up.
This site is so slow it is unusable.
Read the entire thing. Even though it’s outdated (from 2003), it’s pretty epic, and probably very similar to what a lot of us have said while dealing with Microsquish’s various apps and websites.
Hat tip: Free Republic.
