They continually ignore what I have to say, yet I persist in calling them out on their utter hypocrisy.

They delight in the 'accessibility' of their products, yet they continue to design developer applications whose UI can only be used by 20-somethings with perfect vision.

You folks have already heard me rant about the gray-on-grey UI for Expression Blend.

Current case in point: the search box on the MSDN site now uses a gray background, with a slightly darker gray foreground color for the search text. I can barely read the f***ing thing.

What the f*** is wrong with black text on a white box? Who gives a rat's ass if it's pretty? I'm a programmer, trying to search a site for answers to technical questions.
Software Zen: delete this;
