    I was reading some of the comments posted under that report and noticed that someone posted a link to this article from December 1999 (emphasis mine). Apparently this isn't his first time. :p

    I don't have a problem with computer-illiterate people. They usually know their limitations. This guy doesn't.
    Besides, the very fact that he actually blames Bill Gates personally for his problems proves that he's a n00b. :D

    I bet everyone would love a bug free application, but it comes down to something created by a person or people it is going to have bugs in.

    Yes! its about time someone took on this kind of thing! Bug free code is easy to do and anyone who doesn't is a slack programmer who doesn't know his writeln from his printf.

    I'm going to vote for him

    Thing is microsoft could release software which has significantly fewer bugs than normal, but it would cost twice the price and still would have bugs in that people would find! :p
