I always wonder how is it that a perfectly working, useful program with a nice, tidy interface, made by a small, noname company starts becoming a shiny, error-prone, useless piece of bloatware after big, hotshot companies buy the product or the entire company that used to make it.
And I wonder why the hell do programmers that work on skype these days do even get paid (I presume, they do get paid), because since Microsoft took the damn thing over, the quality of the entire skype experience just got worse and worse.
What is wrong with these people, seriously, they took a perfectly working program and turned it into a useless piece of good looking crap. Constantly nagging me to update (my latest version was 6.21 something), well, I finally decided to upgrade to version 7. “Newer, better and improved”. Someone should beat the living crap out of the idiots who work on skype and think that if they’ve improved the visual appeal of a program they’ve actually made an improvement.
What the hell is this new trend all over the net with programmers these days (chrome/chromium, flash, firefox, almost all linux version, ANY digital product), they all just make shiny tweaks with regard to the looks here and there, and the products get worse and worse as time goes by ?
Here’s skype’s example : after the upgrade, every third or so click ANYWHERE on the skype interface gives out an error message and the damn “home screen” can’t be turned off.
What the hell is wrong with these people, seriously, where have they learned to program, in the dumpster behind there grandma’s bar where they get wasted on pot every day ? (if they have learned at all)
Very, very sad…
I guess it’s just the result of the fact that people like Marissa Mayer and Steve Ballmer only hire people with astounding resumes who have no clue how to continue the work done on skype before them, work done by people who didn’t have these assholes degrees but instead had KNOWLEDGE and KNOW-HOW.
