Why Windows 10 is bad

If you care,
these are words from a Microsoft programmer:
MS has some very talented programmers. They're not very common, but they
exist. The problem is that the entire company is completely and totally
focused on developing an absurd number of new features and products,
giving them completely unrealistic deadlines, and then shipping software
on those deadlines no matter how half-assed or buggy it is.
The idea is that everything is serviceable over the internet now, so
they can just "fix it later", except they never do. This perpetuates a
duct-tape culture that refuses to actually fix problems and instead
rewards teams that find ways to work around them. The talented
programmers are stuck working on code that, at best, has to deal with
multiple badly designed frameworks from other teams, or at worst work on
code that is simply scrapped. New features are prioritized over all but
the most system-critical bugs, and teams are never given any time to
actually focus on improving their code. The only improvements that can
happen must be snuck in while implementing new features.
As far as M$ is concerned, all code is shit, and the only thing that
matters is if it works well enough to be shown at a demo and shipped.
Needless to say, I don't work there anymore.
I already knew this, but it is good to hear.
The only problem for us here is that Linux basically also follows this
The "release early, release often" model.
