Why Everyone Hates Microsoft

Stuff that should be one click either takes all day, or doesn't work at all.
To wit: bluetooth connections between my windows mobile smartphone and either of the windows machines I use at work. I am the kind of guy who can troubleshoot just about any windows problem (ask me about my workaround for Vista, OneNote2007, and SharePoint Services servers that are old and not well-kept, securitywise...), but this is absolutely baffling, and web search after web search shows no fixes.
No matter what I do, no matter how many drivers I update, not matter where I look, the simple bluetooth pair 'n' go process DOES NOT WORK between windows mobile BlackJack and windows XP or Vista.
Does anyone think Apple would settle for a non-functional and unfixable wireless synchronization solution between its portable devices and PCs?
Redmond -- pull your heads out of your... wherever you've got them stuffed. This stuff needs to work flawlessly, out of the box. Or people will continue to laugh and buy competing products.
