I don't doubt you. Be we must remember that essentially each and every Windows computer becomes a unique computer just minutes after it is first booted - with nearly countless HW configurations, network and security setups, installed apps and Windows personalizations. And of course, not all hardware was made to support W11. It may be older and made for W10 (or even Vista or XP!). Sadly, not all hardware makers and 3rd party software developers made a concerted effort to update their drivers and software to optimize support for W11. Why? There's no profit in that - they would rather we buy all new.
But - I agree Microsoft could and should do better. IMO, they need to concentrate more on fixing bugs and optimizing existing features before coming out with new features. This is where the marketing weenies and execs need to keep their greedy fingers out of the development department so the developers can do their jobs unhindered. And we also have to remember with over 30 million lines of code, much often evolving, there will always be some bugs. Even the developers are only human.
That said, I stand by what I said and note that "most" users, who give the new software versions (any software) a chance to get used to it, will soon see it as intuitive and become happy (or at least not unhappy) with it. If you get used to Firefox, Chrome seems clunky. If you get used to Chrome, Firefox seems clunky. Same with our security software, word processors, PDF viewers - you name it.
Humans don't like change. We like the status quo. We like what we are used to.
I don't either. I have been one of their harshest critics - when due!
The difference is, unlike some, sadly, is with huge corporations, I know the difference between the executive and marketing departments, and the development teams. I know this because I used to work for a HUGE corporation that did software development too - in my one division, I was one of 10 hardware techs among 400+ developers.
Unlike many, I know how compartmentalized huge corporations can be - where one hand really doesn't know what the other is doing. Or worse, where one hand controls the purse strings of the other without having a clue for what they are doing or what they need while a third clueless hand is steering, guided only by $$$ signs and immediate returns for their investors.
Some of the executive decisions at Microsoft have been downright evil, if not criminal, IMO. And I have told them so - especially when I was a MS MVP. And some of the marketing scams... err... campaigns instituted and/or conducted by the marketing weenies have been totally anti-consumer. And I have been very vocal about that too. Notice I am no longer a MVP.
But on the development side of the house, that is a totally different breed of people - a truly dedicated bunch of true expert professionals who really do want their products to excel while keeping us safe. And they do a great job of that too.
So while I am one of their harshest critics, I will defend them with equal vigor when biased MS haters unjustly blame MS for actions and events they did not cause. And if you bothered to go back through some of my threads, you will see I have not minced words there either. For example, search for me and the words, marketing weenies. Yet some folks, apparently like yourself @64K, only see when I defend MS, then pounce on the MS haters bandwagon to make some underhanded, misinformed comment about it.
Have a nice day.
Defend all you like. Everyone knows what MS is.
I can't speak on this anymore because of a moderator who holds me in contempt. I got banned one time for a year. It will probably be 2 years next time. Debating MS ethics isn't worth it.
