Windows We're really on the subject of software installation issues on OSNews lately, and this story, making its rounds on the internet, fits in quite well. Back in the day, during the antitrust lawsuits against Microsoft, Microsoft had to make a whole slew of corporate email public. In light of Gates' imminent withdrawal from Microsoft, SeattlePI dug up a little gem among these emails, one in which Bill Gates goes on a full-blown rant about the difficulties he had trying to download and install Windows MovieMaker, back in 2003.

I don't mean if he'd tried it and it had worked flawlessly would he still complain.. that's just foolishness. Of course rational people don't complain because something works.

I should elaborate, if he hadn't tried to install Movie Maker and only heard of it not working for other people.. would he have taken such concern?
