outlook is broken,Microsoft, Outlook Is Broken, Says 6,000 Tweets,solve it,

While it is pretty much the standard email client, Microsoft Outlook has long had problems rendering HTML correctly in emails. And the latest version, Outlook 2010, due sometime in the next several months, not only isn't going to fix that — it's going to make it worse. And a lot of users aren't happy about it at all.

One such user has created a site called Outlook's broken — Let's fix it. The site is simple, it's a constantly updating stream of users tweeting out their desire for Microsoft to fix this problem with Outlook. Right now, it's just about 6,000 tweets, but it's growing about a tweet every second (even at this hour of the night here in the U.S.). When a new tweet comes in, that user's icon appears on the screen next to hundreds of other icons that had previously tweeted about it. And as the stream updates, random tweets about fixing Outlook are flashed on the screen.
