I don't much like Microsoft, mostly due to the fact that Windows is full of bugs, and is 3-4 times te size it really needs to be, and they rushed it out so fast that they didn't fix the bugs, or tone it down on size.

Presonally I don't like how the courts are hounding Microsft about the monopoly thing. The same thing happened to Bell Canada(Phone service). They worked really hard setting up all their lines, and other hardware, and all of a sudden the CRTC (Canadian TeleCommunication's somehting or other) said that they had a monopoly, and that other companies should be allowed to compete. So what did the CRTC do? They gave other companies the right to compete with Bell Canada by using Bell Canada's hardware that they set up over the last century! The new companies didn't do any of the hard work, but all of a sudden they can become as big as Bell?

I see a simmilar thing happening with Microsoft...

Though, it may also force Microsoft to put out better quality products (size and bug wise) which could be a good thing.

In conclusion: I think that maybe we should wait until someone actually takes the time and effort to write up an OS that is as user friendly as Windows themselves...
