I hate Microsoft, but I despise hackers / virus makers / similar sad pricks with a vengence.

How ironic.

They take so many measures in security and they still get hacked!

It's hard when you've got about 10000x the normal amount of hackers of websites

I second AT's view.

I cant stand Microsoft bashing. Everyone here is using Windows, because it's better than any other OS. I have a Windows/Linux dual boot, and I only ever use Linux for programming in either Java, C or C++ because it comes with free programming tools. But seriously, no other OS is as fully-featured as Windows, and they have excellent customer support (whenever I email a question I get a reply the same day with a precise answer to whatever I asked). If only every other company was that good.

For a system being used by 90% of computer users, I dont see how people can say it's bad. If it was crap, people would migrate to Linux or MacOS (God forbid).

But hey, I dont want to start an OS war, so just ignore my post

Windows is good. Windows is great (excecpt ME, of course). I love windows. Microsoft are not so good. Most people who 'hate' microsoft are just idiots, and don't know what they're talking about. I don't like them on moral grounds, considering their business prectices, but I'm happy to use their software provided it's better than the competition (and, because they tie up rival programmers and leave them in ditches before a product launch, it's usually better).

I dont think they have poor business practices. I think they have business practices. Any company wants to be on top, and be better than any other company in the same market. No one aspires to be "not so good" at whatever they choose to do for a living, unless they're a dole bludger.

Microsoft made their way to the top like any other business would. Just because they make a lot of money doesnt mean they're doing anything overtly "dishonest".

But other than that one point, I agree with you ^__^

I agree with Radix and Shadowcaster sporadically. I agreew Microsoft have worked their way to the top, but now they're there they try to pointlessly monopolize the computer world. Microsoft could lose a billion tomorrow and still be miles ahead of the competition, but yet they don't seem to care. It's true Windows is the best and many Microsoft progs are, but Microsoft make it so we'll never have worthy comparison cos it's fixed that way.

I dislike MicroSoft and I hate them bloating their code with crap, I also hate them taking over every darn market that might have SOMETHING of a OS(Plam's, Cell Phones..), but without Microsoft and Windows, the world would collapse with such a big hole, everyone won't have a standard.

And if they knew about that bug why don't they work on it instead of pimping their image with other crap? It sounds like they need to spare some programmers on bugs.

Bah! I'm going to update to Windows XP Home Edition next chance I get... Windows ME is getting kind of old, and didn't change anything from 98!

 
CRUSH!!

Windows ME was absolute crap though, but I'm all about WindowsXP, it's always been stable as hell for me, dunno why people slag it off all the time.

Too true, but all the third-party programs for windows aren't.
