Even Bill Gates hates Windows

This morning Asi sent round a link to a fantastic email that Bill Gates wrote in 2003. It’s a wonderfully vitriolic rant about just how crap the Windows experience is and how hard it can be to do simple things. God bless you Mr Gates. I bet your home is secretly filled with Macs.

Here’s a highlight:

Someone decided to trash the one part of Windows that was usable? The file system is no longer usable. The registry is not usable. This program listing was one sane place but now it is all crapped up.

But that is just the start of the crap. Later I have listed things like Windows XP Hotfix see Q329048 for more information. What is Q329048? Why are these series of patches listed here? Some of the patches just things like Q810655 instead of saying see Q329048 for more information.

What an absolute mess.

Read the whole thing here.
