Why down with Microsoft well....

They destroy small business, small business that i may be employed by in say 7 years

They steal ideas and pretend they are there own. For example longhorn, when what i saw of the conference its an exact copy of the new Mac 10.4 OS at least as far as the interface and all the new apps related to the interface

No no just a dirty business man

here is an example. MS have no experience or skill in the anti-virus ultility industry, so they buy up a company that does

from bbc website

Romanian software company, GeCAD Software, was bought in 2003 to develop Microsoft's own anti-virus and anti-spyware software

Sickening if you ask me

I think their corporate strategies are excellent!

What's wrong with their software? Most of it is top notch in my opinion tongue.gif

Yeah, copying Tiger was a bit low, but what can y'do?

I agree with Dave, but at the same time, you have to admit that MS have very shrewd business minds. They are very smart in what they do but I dont like their abuse of power.

i understand that perhaps the computing industry wouldnt be as profitable as it is if it was not for MS.

Without MS we wont have such compatibilty, we would all be used diff operating systems and different character sets so no-one could really big money from software as there market would be very niche
