Microsoft once again sucks

Posted in Uncategorized by beebe4 on December 8, 2008

My wife just tried out the new Microsoft Live Calendar (their attempt to catch up to Google Calendar), and it is a case in point why Microsoft is a bad software company.

When you go to “upgrade” to their new calendar it makes you choose between keeping your events or trying out new features. Are you kidding me?!?!?!?

I have developed many, many pieces of software over my career, and this choice should have been PRIORITY #1 when they laid out their goals for this website. Give me one example when I wouldn’t want to carry over my events with me? My wife said “It is Beta” to me to try to calm me down, and I said, “this is amateur hour and it should be pre Alpha”. This is a sad, sad excuse for a software offering.
