Ag Lorg Visio… aka… Wonder Daoine Cén fáth a bhfuil mé ar Mac

N’fheadar daoine cén fáth nach n-úsáideann mé Microsoft an oiread agus a bhí agam roimhe seo. Síleann daoine áirithe nach bhfuil sa rud iomlán PC / Mac ach magadh. Shíl mé an PC i gcoinne Mac ní raibh sa rud ach magadh, freisin. Tá sé nach bhfuil. Bhí mé ar Mac anois go hoifigiúil do de bhliain amháin.

Agus táim lofa.

Is é an rud is measa faoi obair ar Mac ná a bheith ag obair ar ríomhaire freisin. Déanaim é sin gach lá ag an obair. Luchtaithe mé Vista le déanaí (tá sé fós gorm-scáileáin tar éis hibernation) agus bhí orm Microsoft Visio Standard Edition a íoslódáil agus a athshuiteáil. Éasca, ceart? Cheannaigh mé é ó Microsoft ar líne ionas nach rachaidh mé ach é a íoslódáil arís, agus é a athshuiteáil.

Téim go dtí an áit loighciúil, Ionad Íoslódála Microsoft. Tá béite Silverlight de Microsoft Download Center mar sin déanaim é! Níl agam ach “Visio” a chlóscríobh sa réimse “íoslódálacha cuardaigh”. Seo an chéad rud le 119 toradh:
Béite Lárionad Íoslódála Microsoft - An Cuardaigh le haghaidh Visio

Cad é an chéad toradh rangaithe? Ní Visio ar chor ar bith ... is é an Breiseán Microsoft Office 2007: Microsoft Sábháil mar PDF nó XPS. Huh? (Níl mé fiú ag iarraidh a dhéanamh amach cén fáth gurb é an chéad toradh céim # 31). Mar sin, léigh mé agus sórtálann mé agus léigh mé agus sórtálann mé agus leathnaím chun 100 toradh a thaispeáint… Ní féidir liom Visio a aimsiú áit ar bith… díreach roinnt lucht féachana agus dornán cacamas eile.

Amach chuig suíomh na hOifige! Ó cheannaigh mé Visio ar líne, cheap mé go mbeinn in ann filleadh ar an siopa tríd an Microsoft. Tugaim timpeall beagáinín, ach faighim é ... Visio Standard Edition. Agus ar an mbarra taobh clé… Ceannacháin Roimhe Seo! Yahoo !!!!… er… Wahooo atá i gceist agam !!! Cliceáil ar Ceannacháin Roimhe Seo agus tagann uimhir mo shonraisc suas. Sea !!!! Beagnach ann!!!! Cliceáil an ceannach agus seo an méid a fhaighim:
Íoslódáil Microsoft Office le Digital River Broken

Ouch. Tá Internet Explorer 7 á úsáid agam fiú ... gan an ceann seo a chur i mbaol ar Firefox fiú. Glan mé mo fhianáin. Déanaim nascleanúint ar ais, cliceáil ar mo shonrasc… agus….
Íoslódáil Microsoft Office le Digital River Broken

Tarraingíonn tú Microsoft! Ar an ngréasán agus uaidh ... tarraingíonn tú! Anois ní féidir liom mo thionscadal a dhéanamh inniu leis na bogearraí a bhfuil díomá orm sa mhéid is go ndearna tú uasghrádú orm a chosain $ 150 eile dom nach féidir liom a íoslódáil agus nach féidir liom a úsáid.

N’fheadar i ndáiríre cén fáth go bhfuil mé ar Mac.

Ní haon iontas cén fáth go bhfuil Brand Microsoft ag dul in olcas. Chuirfeadh sé iontas orm a fháil amach an raibh ar fhostaithe Microsoft fiú a gcuid táirgí féin a úsáid, ar líne nó as líne.

    Yeah, I’m sick of M$ crap as well. I recently jumped ship on Outlook 07 and went to Mozillas Thunderbird.. Glad I did. Also goin to be installing open office soon to get rid of the rest of M$ office garbage.

    Really considering making the leap and using nothing but linux on my machines now. It has become very user friendly as of late and most winblows software has a linux compatible alternative thse days.

    Not sure If I’m brave enough to get a mac tho.

    What a nightmare!!! Microsh*te! When we people learn…. Microsoft are going to be in REAL trouble when the corporate community suddenly realise they will save time and money when they switch to Mac and stop using Microsoft products.

    And yet, as I read down the article, your Google Ads link at the bottom of your entry has links to purchase Office 2003 and 2007.

    And Mac ads on the side, intermixed with other Office add ins.

    Sometimes it’s really fun how automated advertising code can pop up at the most interesting times. Your post combined with the “timely” ads made my evening 🙂

    I’ve had very few problems with Microsoft products. Oh, I’ve had plenty of problems online, but nothing critical. Due to the general unreliability of the Internet, I prefer to have hard-copies of all the programs I buy, especially when they’re expensive. Old school, I know.

    It’s ironic, but I’ve had more problems with Macs and Linux than with Windows, and open source programs never seem to work right with me. It’s certainly not for lack of technical know-how (I’ve been using computers since the days of DOS).

    Also, why do people substitute characters when writing “Microsoft”? I mean, it’s not as if actually spelling it out will somehow augment Bill Gates’ unholy power to rule the world. It just looks silly.

      Hi Cody,

      This post was a big giant vent over my frustration with their site. I think the connection is that Microsoft is somewhat disconnected with their users. My issue wasn’t about the software (this time ;), it was really about the customer service.

      For as long as I remember, it’s always been that way. Microsoft has been somewhat unapproachable and has dictated the direction… things like having a browser that didn’t apply standards, building out security models that only worked with Microsoft-based applications, and ignoring other standards – like document standards.

      I have a lot of respect for what they’ve achieved, but I do believe their animosity for anyone else in the space is getting the best of them. One look at a Steve Ballmer video spells it out for me!

      Don’t get me wrong, Jobs has his quirks, too. He’s a jackass if you read the latest Wired magazine. But I think his attention is much better focused on changing the status quo and trying to make things easier and more stylish for his ‘cult’.

      Cheers!
      Doug
