Microsoft Visio: a lesson in mediocrity
I am an Architect and my job involves building system architecture diagrams and share them with my team. My company uses MS office heavily and thus Visio is available as the standard diagramming tool.
How do the product managers of this product look in the mirror morning? Do they know that despite being a part of multi billion dollar company with near infinite resources they created something so mediocre and bad?
Why don't the senior managers of MS notice this travesty? MS office is one of the biggest revenue earners for MS and still this product is a several years behind ordinary companies on the internet.
Why don't they see this?
