    That bolded one goes a bit too far. My hatred of Microsoft started as a result of inferior product that people pretend is good. They say how user-friendly Microsoft products are, but:
    -they crash at least 10x more often that similar programs from different manufacturers
    -they usually take up 1.5x or more additional space on the hard drive
    -error messages and options are either misleading or incomprehensible to those who are not HIGHLY computer saavy
    -I'd change, but until very recently, Microsoft has threatened to pull liscences from computer manufacturers and software companies that used different platforms, leaving a considerable lack of alternatives
    -Internet Explorer is probably the most poorly made web browser in the world. In addition to all of the above problems, it was, until threat of lawsuit, incapable of working with non-Microsoft perpherals, such as java applets, and is still completely integrated into Windows, meaning you can't free up the 100+ MB of space it takes up
    -Microsoft programs are plagued with security issues, make them the single largest cause of identity thefts other than the internet and the theives themselves. These security issues are rarely addressed until they are exploited on a grand scale.
    -The function of 25-50% of the total source code for Windows is unknown, since the programmers have been fired and the code is so poorly written, labeled, and inefficient, that it would cost Microsoft more to untangle it than to start from scratch. Since they're unethical and take no pride in their work, they simply left the code in there, fearing its removal would cause Windows to cease functioning. Most security issues, bugs, and other shortcomings come from this code.

    In addition to that, Microsoft has yet to make anything that can be considered an innovation. A website once sponsored a contest that would award $1000 to the first person to find a Microsoft innovation. This was over 5 years ago. The prize has yet to be awarded.

    Anybody who knows anything about computers curses the very land it works on and would sooner shoot Bill Gates than give him the time of day. It's a vile company whose monopolistic practices are the only thing that allows them to make more than minimal sales of their grossly substandard product.

    Other than that, I agree with the above post.

    Really? I guess I don't know anything about Computers then, because I love Microsoft.... nevermind the fact that I make my living working with PC's, hardware and software....

    What you fail to acknowledge is that if it was NOT for Microsoft, the PC wouldn't be as pimp as it is today...

    It's always easy to pick on the "biggest target".....

    Just because it's all we have that's good enough for the "masses", doesn't mean it's not shit. Two words:

    Learn Linux.

    Lemme give you an example. My dad's office used an NT server for years because it's what they had. The tech department hated it because it caused them major headaches. The server had to be taken down for at least 4 hours once every two weeks due to stability problems. The server was full of bugs and never really worked right at all. The techies kept begging to switch the server to Linux, because it's much better and better yet, it's free, but the bosses were wary of changing the system. One day, they caved and let the techies switch to Linux. The server has been running for 7 years solid. The only time it's been shut down during that time is for hardware upgrades and replacements. I have to keep my skills sharp as a tack just to keep my own Windows machine running. That's why I do all my homework in Linux.

    Macintosh is also a superior operating system with its major flaw being that it can't run on Intel chipset processors.

    Windows simply blows. In fact, Windows was just a GUI for DOS until ME, which was quite possibly the least stable OS ever made.

    Too bad the Unix elitists liked to keep things cryptic and text based, disdaining guis as being for the weak. They could have done something great.
