"Of poor quality; displaying an inability to function or operate." "Resolved in an untimely manner." Equinox 00:24, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Delete. google books:"Microsoftian" suggests that this term has quite a range of senses, the only common factor being that they all mean "characteristic of Microsoft". A fair number are rather derisive, alluding to the (purportedly) illogical organization of Microsoft user interfaces, to a (purported) tendency at Microsoft to respond unhelpfully to media queries, and so on, but there's no one common derisive sense. —RuakhTALK 14:59, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

RFV-sense faulty, not functioning, etc. See Talk:Microsoftian, which suggests this sense was removed before but then re-added (who did this? why?). The single citation could just as well fit under the primary sense (relating to Microsoft). Equinox 01:45, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Removed in this edit [1], re-added in this one [2] by an editor who has since been blocked. - -sche (discuss) 02:58, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
I have removed the sense. It previously failed RFV and should not have been re-added without three clear citations. - -sche (discuss) 22:06, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
