I worked for Microsoft employees, so I know that they are treated (and rewarded) very well. OTOH, I'm really tired of Windows crashing, DRM issues, WGA crap - I'm f***ing sick of all of it. And the general public harbors positive feelings about them?

I dont like M$ and i hate windows. Im just not smart enough (YET) to use only Linux. and once linux gets game support then i think you will see a lot more people switch over.

i do agree the Xbox was awesome. but the 360 has a 33% failure rate which is terrible and the 3 year warranty dose not make up for it.

IMO the reason there OS is #1 is because they got an early foot hold. just imagine if Linux had as strong of a backing as M$ did when they first introduced there OS we would probably have something similar to the Intel AMD wars. and M$ word is popular because they try to sue anyone who develops anything similar. go look at open office it is just as good as M$ word but it is free.

this is all just my opinion.

But a lot of games already run fine under Linux I play WoW in Linux, I've also played quite a few other games under Linux. Oh and I also love Samegnome and the Linux equivalent of Minesweeper and a few other of the little time killer ones out.

I love Vista more though, I loved XP when no one had love for anything but 2000/98. In a few years all this "oooh I hate Vista" will die down and you'll all go back to feeding off the corporate teet of Microsoft and you'll be happy with it.

Also, you're not going to get smarter about Linux until you have to use it. Get rid of Windows now if it's so horrible.

but the game support isn't like it is on windows. but i do play ut 2k4 on linux and if ut 3 is vista only i will be using the linux installer instead of buying vista.

and there are things that i do with videos that it is easer to do in windows for me rite now especially because i bought the program. i can run it under wine but it makes things take longer and my time is valuable to me rite now so i try not to waste it.

and i use M$ word for school work instead of open office so that i dont have to worry about accidentally saving it as the wrong format.

I don't LOVE microsoft, but I love XP, I love Vista, and I loved my Xbox. Gates is kind of a goofball, but a very good man, and the company makes mistakes, but it's still a good company.


I do love me some Google, though.

Says every Linux fanboy for the past 10+ years.Still waiting...Don't get me wrong, I like Linux - I run a Ubuntu Box. But face it, it will never reach the amount of users, be as successful or get anywhere near the customer base of Windows.

but look how much more support for games there is now from just 2 years ago.

and no product lasts forever. M$ will mess up sometime and then give linux/ mac OS a chance to take over.
