Fuck you, Microsoft: the environment variable windows

Why, oh why, is the environment variable window (accessible from the system preferences) such an atrocious experience, beyond the limits of human pain tolerance?

Why does the window not have a fucking resize handle? Why do I have to click on scrollbar handles smaller than my fucking mouse pointer to browse my environment variables? Why is there no way to search or replace strings? Why is the intern who wrote this GUI probably a top executive now?

"Why do I have to click on scrollbar handles smaller than my fucking mouse pointer to browse my environment variables?"

MS deserves credit for the idea of proportional scrollbars. Apple deserves credit for the additional idea of "a minimum size for the scroll-handle".

Pity MS hasn't backported that. :/

Microsoft thought that making a user-friendly environment variable windows wouldn't help to make more money ==> trash

Who needs Microsoft nowadays anyway. They'll be irrelevant in a few years.
