Quote in part....   Windows is a beast.

 

Thousands of developers, testers, program managers, security experts, UI designers, architects, you name it.

 

And that’s before the supporting cast of HR people, recruiters, marketing folks, salespeople, lawyers, and of course many managers, directors, and vice presidents for each of the disciplines mentioned above.

 

The entire ensemble cast is supported by many thousands of others at partner teams (within Microsoft as well as outside) that deliver everything from hardware underneath to device drivers and applications on top of the platform.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

Interesting read. Ironic that Windows 10 still uses a registry that dates back to Windows 95.

When you look at the VAST number of employees.....you would be forgiven for thionking that someone in amongst that throng could come up with something better...seeing it has been that way since august 1994
