Such as with Office and, to a lesser extent, Windows. Good luck with that. To the experienced, it's called Frustrating. Vote with your corporate dollars.
Yes I agree with you completely on many inventions, but my quote was mainly based on items like the refrigerator, electricity, telephone, radio, etc., etc., etc..

Windows 8.1 becomes world's fourth-most-popular desktop OS

With January 2014 now behind us, the firm has totted up the results of its ongoing observations of just what browsers and operating systems hit the world's web servers. Those explorations found that Windows 8.1 now accounts for 3.95 per cent of the world's traffic, up from December's 3.6 per cent and ahead of Windows Vista's 3.3 per cent.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this data is that Windows XP use is not declining as rapidly as seems sensible, inasmuch as it is now just over two months from the end of its supported life.

I just saw a report that the city of Berlin in Germany still has 60.000 PCs running XP and no real plan to get them off it. The city of Munich migrated all their systems to Linux. It cost them a bundle but they hope to save in the long run.

Pretty poor showing for an OS that has been on the market since 18 months. I wonder whether that includes the mobile devices too.
