Here’s an excellent rant from Anil Dash on the idiotic font installer interface in Windows. I had the same thoughts a few days back when I had to install a font under Windows XP, and Anil has done a masterful job of expressing my thoughts.
Please understand: You have about fifty five thousand employees. That’s bigger than the town I grew up in. That’s enough to fill a stadium. I know everybody still wants to see the company as being just Bill Gates, even though he’s not even CEO any more, but you’ve got piles and piles of humans lying around. What incredibly massive pile of bureacratic idiocy has to be weighing you all down that you can’t get one little box changed in a decade? You’ve amassed more than forty billion dollars since the last time you took a look at this dialog box.
