I cannot help but believe that Microsoft products have become so frustratingly defective, that, by now, they must actually be hurting the US economy.
Hundreds of thousands of employees across the Country have been forced to waste hundreds of thousands of hours of work time, wrestling with defective Microsoft programs which either do not function, or are so counter-intuitive, that they have employees ripping their hair out, just trying to perform basic functions so that they can work accomplished.
Lets look at the newest version of Microsoft Word. So many of its functions no longer operate that this product should never have been made available to the public. Non-working functions are those that simply do not work when you choose them.
By way of example, if you tell the program to stop opening documents in safe mode, by turning off the options in the trust center, the program will ignore you, and will keep opening documents in safe mode. Want to know if this defect really exists? Just go onto google and search to see how many people are complaining about this, receiving no CORRECT answers as to how to fix this defect.
The same goes for the remove page numbering command, and the change page orientation command, each of which will often simply not function. These are just three, of a very long list.
It is just amazing that they took what was an excellent word processing program, and turned it into garbage.
As for the abomination known as Windows 8, god only knows how much employees' time US companies have lost as a result of that moronic diatribe of computer coding.
I think the entire Board of Directors at Microsoft needs to be replaced. Any competent board would have never let a respectable company put out garbage such as this.
