Re: Seems this thread had been invaded by Microsoft.
I'm also surprised the Microsoft shills brought up performance
To be honest I don't think the complaints are from Microsoft shills but from people using JIRA which is either incorrectly configured or unsuited to their project. I've seen companies buy JIRA so that they can host it internally and force it on to project managers leading understably to complete clusterfucks and resentment amongst users. But I also regularly see project management by MS Word and Excel which I find much, much worse.
