Do you succumb to mouse rage?

Admit it: You've yelled at your monitor. Or at least mumbled a few choice words under your breath after a program crashed without saving any recent work. But you are not alone: Three out of five business users yell at their computers out of frustration, reports PCWorld.

A new survey by TrackVia found 17 percent of 350 users wanted to quit their jobs over software frustrations and another 17 percent wanted to quit because the software provided was inappropriate for their jobs. The survey also found that 61 percent of users thought they could create better applications if they had the proper software development skills. It should be noted that TrackVia, a software-as-a-service provider, helps users create their own apps.
