BLENDER. That horrid 3d modeling program may be fairly powerful and open source, but it's GUI. Oh my god, I have never ever seen a worse interface in my life. I've spent hours trying to figure it out all it's buttons and icons. Really if you ever thought Gimp was bad, go try making something in Blender.
Ah well, at least it's free.
I got a dummies book on blender once. Read a few pages and tried it, didn't work. I tried going old school and just messing around with it. No dice. Honestly, it's the main reason I am not doing any 3D modeling in the future.
Microsoft Auto-Updater, anyone?
Oh god this one. This is the reason I had to uninstall and reinstall 10+ applications on my computer including messenger. The damned thing installed live essentials - which by the way is a set of programs/updates that piss me off because everything in there was reorganized in some unorganized manner and also had removed functionality in some of my programs. I backtracked to the non-live essentials version of msn so that I could use messenger plus again. I'm glad I did. But it also for some reason removed all my emoticons. Wtf microsoft, this is why I don't like you.

I love the fact that I have a new laptop, but must they cram it with tons of software...actually, not even software. They're all stupid trials.

GTK when applied to Firefox and developing a theme in Stylish. I cannot see the buttons that I'm creating - I have to trust myself and what I know to work out and trust anyone with problems to complain.

Linux developers, quit being counter-Linux-philosophy please, k, thanks.

BLENDER.

Even I gave up on mastering it. I think I'm going to write a one line manual to the entire program for newbies ~ "You must be out of your mind." I can use it, but not well ~ just well enough to get by.

Microsoft Auto-Updater, anyone?

Usually the first "feature" I strip out of Windows. It goes with WGA and BITS, so I don't feel too bad... And Windows is far from something I will ever care about, anyway.

I had a head-on collision with norton antivirus and it wins the "dumbest program ever" title with ease. Undisputed champion. Huge, expensive...and completely useless.

Linux.  Anything and everything related to Linux can go die in a fire, as far as I'm concerned right now.  I've spent my entire weekend trying to help a friend with some Linux diagnostic stuff, and I keep running into dead-ends due to convoluted processes and/or poor documentation.  The latter is the biggest problem; Windows isn't perfect, and people can bash it all they want, but there are entire books of information online about every facet of it, so as long as you have the ability to read and a little patience, there's an answer for any problem or question you could ever have.

iPhoto is, without a doubt, the least user-friendly program on Mac. Moving photos doesn't actually move them. Rather, it makes a copy, which means I have to go through and delete each of the original photos. This can get pretty tedious when you have ~600 photos to import.

Also of equal annoyance is the Photos app in iOS 5. Finally there's the option to create albums, but they do the exact same thing as iPhoto, only worse; deleting the original photo deletes the one in the album,
which almost renders the feature completely useless. Ah, Apple...

FourSquare...

They rolled out some software edits about a year ago, due to people 'cheating'; checking in to places that they were not.
But it seems that, and I've noticed more recent complaints (probably a recent update) this does not always work well, because it trys to say that you are too far from a place, when you are standing in the middle of it, and therefore denying you points for that check-in.

The PS1 SDK.
Y U SO HARD TO USE? Maybe it's not a good place to start when you want to learn practical programming, but yeah. I'd still like to be able to make PS1 homebrew stuff.

Wow, lot of people don't like Blender here. It wasn't THAT hard to figure out....  :?

Anyway, My school had switched over to the new Moodle website. It keeps crashing, and I end up losing my assignments to the endless void of lost electrical signals. :(

I attempted blender's unusual interface once, then decided if all 3d modeling is like that, then I would never want to have it as a job. ever.

ITUNES!

- I can't add half the songs I want.
- I can't make it not come up every time I charge my iPod.
- It slows my computer down to a halt as soon as it comes up.
- It never wants to take less than (seriously) 10 minutes to close down.

I'm so angry. >>
My signature needs a change. It's been four years.
