It's no secret that I am not a fan of Microsoft products. Especially the frelling OS. Since I've started University I've been forced to work with this crappy platform and it's been a major PITA. How does anyone get anything accomplished with this incredible mess they call an operating system and their unusable applications? Ok, call me a Microsoft h8r if you like. It doesn't change the fact that the EOL date for XP keeps being pushed back because businesses are staying away from Vista in droves. The number of home users wiping it and installing XP is staggering when compared to previous Windows upgrades. If it weren't for the fact that Microsoft has a stranglehold on the hardware market such that it's nearly impossible to buy a new computer without Windows on it there probably wouldn't even be any Vista users. All that can be hoped for is that one day the public will wake up and see what kind of fraud Gates and company have perpetrated on them. Maybe then Microsoft will be forced to build products that actually work and don't extort massive amounts of money from their customers.
I'm not holding my breath, though.
