I just love Windows apps on Mac OS lol, this morning MS Word hung for a long time, was completely unresponsive and then I had to 'force quit,' the thing.

Lo and behold, the MS crash reporter opened and it hung for a long time, was completely unresponsive and I had to 'force quit'. How the fuck do they even get through testing?

    What kind of "hang" are you referring to? On mine literally every app needs its 7 seconds to start up. Even small apps like explorer that usually just appear without any noticable loading time. But on my mashine i never get the "not responding" which is really weird. Im running a xeon with 32gb ram and ssd with a rather fresh windows install. (2 weeks old, only installed firefox and steam)

    From your rant: How the fuck do they even get through testing?

    It seems you have never tried XCode, now that is the one thing that I never understood how it passed testing!

    If you submit an app that freezes for a minute it gets rejected, yet xcode crashes randomly, freeze randomly ...

    Bold of you to assume they haven't 'outsourced' testing to their customers yet.

    Microsoft software in general just loves to crash. It's really embarrassing. I've never experienced the kind of system hangs I get on windows with neither macos or Linux. it's one of the least robust UI interfaces I've ever seen. On my Mac, the only program I've forced closed this past month is excel and friends. That's it. Not only that, but on more than 1 occasion. Don't even get me started on the garbage heap called Microsoft VBA.

    Just use Windows if you love Microsoft apps.

    I got windows on another machine and don't get any problems, the Mac is my dev machine because of the awesome high contrast screen (27 inch). I normally use my windows box for .net stuff and server management etc.
