When every and each software company are working on how to get their softwares more efficient and functioning, one of the biggest tycoon of internet industry in China which is called Tecent is just focusing all its energy and attention on plagiarizing applications developed by other companies like Mirabilis, which developed the first IM software ICQ(I seek you) in the world, and adding useless applications regardless of software functioning and source consuming ceaselessly.
QQ, which is originally called QICQ, is an IM software dominating this very area in China developed by Tecent. Founded in 1998, Tecent got really a good time of growing to an internet tycoon during the last 12 years. I began to use QQ when I graduated from high school in the summer, 2006, which I was some lag behind peers of my age. I chatted with 90% of the people I know using QQ, yeah, of course I got like 300 friends in my QQ list at one time. It benefited even more after I went to college, because I was able to chat with friends around the 3rd biggest country in the world whenever I wanted to.
Apparently I knew QQ before ICQ, MSN, which was really a pity for me.
Now I don’t want to use it for one more second. Because I’m angry, I’m angry at Tecent’s keeping plagiarizing applications developed by other firms without feeling any gilt to change this situation, I’m angry at Tecent’s spending their every penny on adding new applications without any spare time on optimizing the software in efficiency and source consuming, I’m angry at Tecent’s greed of money because they spare no energy in advertising everywhere even at every corner of your chatting window.
Since logging in QQ was my very first thing when I started a computer with internet connection, I’ll never do that again. Actually after I reinstalled the OS this afternoon I made a very very tough decision which is I am not going to install QQ on my computer. Tough it is because it’ll difficult to keep in touch with every friend of mine constantly, but I’ll persuade more people to go to Gtalk, MSN or whatever.
Of course, I am and will keep doing this until I do not feel compelled to!
