This might sound like a radical idea but I’m going to run it by you anyway. There is quite a tradition of making stuff that works amongst the human race. Way back when we first started using tools they were judged harshly and the ultimate test was does it work? Stone axes, needles made from bone, sharpened shells or even bits of grass used to tie things together.
Always the question “does it work”? If not chuck it in the bin. Note to self “!invent bin”. Throughout pre-history, history and modern life, inventions have been judged on their ability to work consistently and with a degree of predictability.
So, Microsoft, could you please bear that in mind when coming up with your next product? What people want is stuff that just works. We are not interested in feeding back the extent to which it doesn’t work. We are not interested in the product asking us if we need help using it. We wouldn’t need help using it if it just worked. We don’t want it to stop every other product we own from working as soon as we switch it on.
Please, please, please Microsoft, you must have souls and if you do can you look into them, dark and cold though they might be and search for a spark of humanity? With this spark can you take pity on the human race and MAKE STUFF THAT JUST WORKS?
It’s not just me that thinks this. Take a look at this video.
