Microsoft Fail of the Week! – Where are they going with all this?
I’m rather sick of Microsoft “fixing” things in version updates to Windows. Here is one I just love to hate.
I’m RDP into a server.
Doing some server work.
I finish and click log off. (Windows 2008 R2)
I get a confirmation about it. – YES
I get another confirmation about it – YES and Force
Then is just sits there forever.
Now I remote check the server performance. Guess what. the server load is through the roof. And stays that way for a considerable amount of time.
Remote shutdown is disabled, and failing.
The machine is in some sort of Microsoft Hell.
Now it may be me, but did programs not shutdown correctly for like the last 15 years of Microsoft Windows, when you logged off.
As a server administrator, am I so daft that I need a reminder about logging off closing my programs, and a way that no earlier versions of Windows did, but now suddenly they have to invent a jquery style splash page that DOES NOT WORK.
Here is a tip for Microsoft. When you are working on new versions of software. MAKE THEM BETTER not worse than your last version!
Now when I next login, it is giving me some Shutdown Event Tracker errors:
Where is the option for “It’s a busted ass Microsoft Bug”
So I’m forced to comment in the usual server administrator way.
Really why force me to type anything. I’m not a child!
Then I get this:
No message, no “On solution found” it just disappears from screen. WTF.
It’s like they have beat me with a stick till I have to go and try a Mac. Honestly! Who’s running that place?
This looks serious about something. Can’t imagine it is GOOD QUALITY SOFTWARE! You?
