Re: What about Windows 10 that Office is sitting on?

The easiest way to get MS to stop fucking around is to fine them so hard it makes their shareholders bleed like badly butchered pigs. A slap on the wrist won't even make them blink, a few million dollars will make them laugh, but a few hundred BILLION will shove that laughter right back down their throats so they choke on it.

Give MS a hard date for improvements to be made, test the hell out of the whole thing (OS & office) to make sure it complies, & fine the fuck out of them if it doesn't.

This "fix it or we fine you to death" tactic is perfect for pretty much *every* company that thinks it can thumb its nose at you. Don't write a stern letter, don't fine them what amounts to sixty seconds of profit on a slow day, fine them so much their shareholders jump up out of their cushy chairs & howl for the situation to change else they get a CEO's head on a pike.
