You can't polish *that* turd

Seriously, Window Search has NEVER been reliable. The latest one won't find things like 'Word' after installing MS Office, unless you wait a bit. What kind of fuckery is that?!

Windows is full of so many stupid little bugs. Even right now, I'm working on a laptop, and it's running just on the mains with no battery until I put the case back together. The battery indicator has a cross on it. That's fine, it means there's no battery. But the % indicator says 255% available. Seriously? It's minor and unlikely to be seen too frequently but it's a schoolboy error!

I haven't written a line of code for nigh-on 30 years, so I don't know the ins and outs of this, but it's clear to me that the quality of the code coming out of that company is just not as high as it could be.
