I'm torn between Lotus Notes and Microsoft Entourage. I hate them both with a passion.

+1 couldn't agree more


Kies,Gimp, Opera
Gimp, really? My favorite image editor right there. Opera though is pretty bad, I'll have to agree with that

I wasn't planning on saying anything in this thread, but then I saw that GIMP was mentioned. Was that a joke? I'll grant that it has been far from perfect, but a serious candidate for worst piece of software of all time...?

If I can pick anything, I'd have to say Windows OS and everything that has evolved related to it!

Opera is VERY painful but I don't know if it's the worst. Windows OS just keeps popping into my mind (like an anvil that landed on it!).

Fair enough. I hated it before single window mode was introduced. Even then, though, I didn't think it was nearly one of the worst of all time!

I have to vote Lotus Notes.

Being a (former) CLI, Certified Lotus Instructor, I have to disagree.

My vote for biggest piece of crap around would be McAfee Endpoint Encryption.
