Scot Posted May 26, 2003 Share Posted May 26, 2003 At one time or another, most of us have run into an application that is just plain terrible. There are many bad actors out there (and also some great apps). My intent is not to beat up a long list of lesser-known software products. Instead, I want to shine a little light on applications many of us use -- and hate. Especially those many of us are forced to use, as well as programs that are widely used, even though they're awful.First Nominees to the Software Hall of ShameThis can be a very controversial and subjective topic. So I'm nominating some to get the ball rolling:RealNetworks RealPlayer and RealOneMicrosoft Windows Media PlayerMicrosoft Outlook ExpressMicrosoft OutlookMicrosoft MSNAmerica OnlineLotus NotesJasc Paint Shop ProISS BlackICESharman Networks KaZaAStreamCast Networks MorpheusClearly not everyone is going to agree with some of these (Outlook, Outlook Express, and BlackICE come to mind, for example ). And there are several notable bad guys I haven't put on the list. Nominate others in return, or make a (friendly, constructive), impassioned plea for why any nominated application doesn't deserve to be in the Software Hall of Shame.But, what do you think?-- Scot Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
