[citation][nom]sicundercover[/nom]They are Horrific just like their advertising department. However the first step is admitting you have a problem. LOL[/citation]
Yes, at least they are admitting that there is a problem. I wish another company, who will remain unnamed at this time, would admit their problems :sarcastic: ;)

The Microsoft website(s) have changed from the past. They were much, much worse, nearly hair-pullingly worse. Things have improved, but there could still be some improvements, however.

I have to say the Microsoft website looks like it was made in 2000 and never updated. The layout and design look very dated, surprising considering its a multi-billion dollar company.

When you have a monopoly, you don't need good websites or half-way decent advertising...

One of their problems has to be that they have so many pages, sites, and sub-sites. All the info they have must be difficult to manage.

That's so true... The best bet used to be to type in the search of their main webpage what you are looking for and IF you are lucky enough to find it while scolling the results. Now it is million times more convinient.

Wonder how Bill ill take the statement though and his thoughts on the effect of the statement on the audience.

[citation][nom]okibrian[/nom]Hey, don't forget your MCP site sucks too. Oh, and the MCT site (along with the renewal process and staff) sucks the most.[/citation]
Hey, don't forget every other Microsoft site!

Hopefully they aren't so crappy and confusing soon enough!

No...Al Gore discovered and invented the internet.

What fruity company would do such a thing?
