You talk like the developers I used to work with long ago, where they
figured bugs were just something that you have to learn to live with.
It's a big deal when a mandatory Microsoft Windows 10 Pro update bricks the
system. It's due to poor coding. Very poor coding. Lousy testing too.

Interestingly, when I dropped off my computer at the Microsoft Store
earlier this week for them to fail at unbricking the operating system, I
snapped a few pictures within seconds of each other of the two stores,
which are directly across the hall from each other in Santa Clara

The Santa Clara California Microsoft Store was a lot bigger than the Apple
store though, and there was a LOT of gaming going on, with kids everywhere
playing the Xbox for free and a special glass room just for seminars.
But it did seem like a bigger copy of Apple, so I agree that they
capitalized on what Apple came up with (even though they told me they've
been there for many years).

This is the one in Santa Clara California, where the Microsoft Store is
clearly huge compared to the Apple Store.
