why microsoft sucks

Dear Microsoft

I am writing to let you know why after years of putting up with shoddy software that does not work I finally have pretty much demanding Microsoft for good.  I have been using Microsoft word on a daily basis since about 1990 or so. I retired in 2016 from the Department of State as a foreign service officer.  Since retirement I have bene blogging, and writing poetry and fiction.  Up until six months ago I was writing my work using Microsoft word and keeping track of my submissions on Excel.  I finally gave up on both products after years of frustration. 

I will keep my subscription for now because I do need to have access to my documents and I do need to be able to submit the documents for publication in the Microsoft Word format.

I have sent many of my observations and complaints to Microsoft over the years but no one has ever bothered to follow up and your customer service is a nightmare.  Every time I call them they have not been able to answer my problems and generally make things worse.

The basic problem is that your software has too many bugs and doesn’t work I’ll just give you a specific example or two. 

50% error rate Un-acceptable

One week about a year ago after being frustrated that Microsoft word would frequently crash causing me to loose my work, I kept track of all errors during a one week period and concluded that about 50% of the time when I was using Microsoft word or Excel I encountered some kind of error usually just a temporarily “not responding” error that cleared up in a few seconds, but often times the software would crash requiring me to either reload it or sometimes reboot my computer.

Opening Microsoft in the morning if I had to reboot my computer would sometimes require me to wait 30 minutes before I could open Microsoft and often I would have 20 or 30 different versions of Microsoft opened accidentally while I was trying to open it. Then I would have to manually close each and every single document and each time I did that I would get a temporarily response error so many days it would take 30 minutes or so before I could get in to my documents and get to work.  This is clearly unacceptable.

Apple, Google Docs Always Work

Contrast this with “Apple pages” which I’ve started using for about six months. It opens every single time and I have yet to have a non-responsive error and never had any problems with it.  It does what it supposed to do and does it perfectly. It allows me to save documents to word and it open word documents.  Microsoft word of course does not allow me to open a document created in Pages. It does allow me to open a document created in Google docs though.

Excel Destroyed my Documents – For No Reason I Can understand

I had to give up on Excel as well.  About six months ago for some reason that I’ve never been able to figure out  Excel started to give me an error message every single time I tried to copy data into it from another program When I did that I got an error message saying that there were “too many fonts” being used and then I had the option of clicking OK and hoping that that would stop the error message.  usually I had to click Okay many times before it cleared up. One time I had to click okay message for four hundred times before it would clear and let me get back to my work. Excel would often just refuse to save any documents whatsoever and then I would have to reboot my computer and lose my data.

Tech Support Was Not Helpful

I contacted Microsoft repeatedly and nobody ever bothered to return a message and your online help function was useless and your automated chat bot never was able to figure out what I was talking about.  I did not call customer support because I figure it would have been useless waste of time. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the software and the error message continued.

I shifted to Google Docs and it is working wonderfully. Almost never have a problem.  and the font issue was never an issue.

Dictation Program  Produces Great Found Poetry

Finally your dictation program has never worked. I am using the Apple dictation program to write this letter it has a 95% success rate Microsoft dictation had a 25% success rate most of the time they produce gibberish. I did use that to create a number of found poems which I called Microsoft dictation poems. I sent poems to Microsoft but again nobody has ever responded.

I did call when I first installed the dictation program.  Nothing worked.  Microsoft tech support could not figure out that the problem was the the dictation program did not work with the internal speaker of a laptop. They told me to reformat my hard drive. I went to Best Buy and they told me that it does not work with a laptop and sold me an external microphone.  I bought an external speaker and then it worked but only 25% of the time did I get a clean copy, 75% of the time it produced gibberish.

To end on a positive note, your speech to text function did not work for a long time then one day it started working and once it started working, there as a 90% success rate.  This gives me hope that one day you will get the dictation program to work.

My plea to you sir is to get your software to work 95% of the time every single time I know that this may not be glamorous and I know this may not be seen as the direction of the company but I know that my experience is not unique and that most of your customers are very frustrated with your products and that is why more and more people are using products as such as Google Docs or Apple products because Microsoft word and excel just don’t work.  Please fix your Microsoft office suite products  – a 50% error rate it’s just not acceptable. 

I would be happy to follow up with anyone from Microsoft if they wish to talk to me about this but I do not think anybody will bother to respond I will post this on my blog, https://the world  

I hope that you will take this constructive criticism into account and fix Microsoft office once and for all thank you

Find themselves wandering the streets
Off Thorth

People in the earth
find themselves wondering the street Ovas
And for one night only

All the animals
in earth wake up
in can speak

And they have a lot to say

24 hours total madness
All the barriers

between the various dimensions
break down

And then the worm hole disappears
and that down overwhelms
I put back to get

I am With the Wizard of Oz
Watching The breakdown
of The dimensional barrier of time and space

Afterwards I work with Glenda
To try to put A permanent Magical barrier

That the knowledge of the house has gotten out
And that Too many people
are gonna want to find Oz

the impact of damn Packers
and talking animals

Continued to prepare for 8
And The world is well

while acting behind my back
