Thank You Microsoft

Thank you for having mail software that is so bad that it not only screws up the people who use it, but it screws up nearly everyone else. Thank you for creating a monster that reaches out of its own world, crosses boundaries, slows productivity, causes admins to scurry and users to fear for their data. Thank you for giving my website intermittent access problems even though there are no Microsoft products involved. Thanks for crappy security.

Thanks, Microsoft. And thank you Bill Gates.

[But, for real, thank you dear reader for your repeat visits even though this website has been flaky. Maybe Microsoft will fix its lousy software. Someday.]

Yeah, I was wondering about the slow access. Your ISP isn't hosting this on IIS, is it? :-)

Unlikely. Microsoft is past the point where competition requires it to produce a better product than the other guy. Now all it has to do is kill the other guy.
