Esta notícia é mesmo uma bomba! :-D - Bill Gates desapontado com a Microsoft! (um mail interno confidencial que parece ter vasado, nada de se estranhar, imaginando os podres que uma empresa como a Microsoft não deva ter, e tanta gente a trabalhar lá contrariada que esteja completamente a marimbar para a confidencialidade para este tipo de informação)
onde se lê:
" 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.
This site is so slow it is unusable.
I tried scoping to Media stuff. Still no moviemaker. I typed in movie. Nothing. I typed in movie maker. Nothing. So I gave up and sent mail to Amir saying - where is this Moviemaker download? Does it exist?"
So I got back up and running and went to Windows Update again. I forgot why I was in Windows Update at all since all I wanted was to get Moviemaker. So I went back to Microsoft.com and looked at the instructions. I have to click on a folder called WindowsXP. Why should I do that? Windows Update knows I am on Windows XP. What does it mean to have to click on that folder? So I get a bunch of confusing stuff but sure enough one of them is Moviemaker. So I do the download. The download is fast but the Install takes many minutes. Amazing how slow this thing is.
What an absolute mess. Moviemaker is just not there at all.
So after more than an hour of craziness and making my programs list garbage and being scared and seeing that Microsoft.com is a terrible website I haven't run Moviemaker and I haven't got the plus package. The lack of attention to usability represented by these experiences blows my mind. I thought we had reached a low with Windows Network places or the messages I get when I try to use 802.11. (don't you just love that root certificate message?) When I really get to use the stuff I am sure I will have more feedback."
Lindo! Bonito! Kalu, filma aqui! :-D
Não demora muito, o próprio Bill Gates vai acabar por migrar para Linux também!
Agora, uma pergunta: porque a grande maioria dos utilizadores de Windows e programas da Microsoft ainda os utilizam, se o próprio Bill Gates, que conhece os programas da Microsoft tão bem, tem imensa dificuldade de os utilizar?
