Is Microsoft learning?

I had high hopes that Microsoft might be able to get their act together when building the Anniversary Update for Windows 10. But so far, things do not look promising.

Not only does Microsoft install this self serving piece of crapware. They also spam the Info-Center with repeated push messages. I assume they want to teach other developers to do the same. And lastly, this piece of crapware does not even know that I am already an Office 365 subscriber. Although I am logged into my Microsoft account.

Microsoft, do you serioulsy assume that Windows users never heard of Office 365? Do you need to push them, repeatedly? Even if they already have the product?

This is just incompetence.

I'm rapidly tiring of Office365. Random subscription cancellations, every attempt to make me upgrade at each turn, difficulty using shared mailboxes.


Is this 2016? It's difficult to tell.

If only iCloud let me use my own domain names. SoGo is looking increasingly attractive.

Sorry to hear that, Bill. Probably a punishment for your prior Lotus life. ;-)

But whether Office 365 is any good is not the point here. The point here is crapware that pollutes Windows, right from Microsoft. And it's not even the only piece.

das Verhalten seitens MS entspricht dem eines E-Mail spammers. Mann muss nur die Gerichte davon ueberzeugen. Auf die Kundschaft hoert MS ja scheinend nicht.
