Ok, let me start this off right. I dont understand all the hatred that gets directed at Microsoft from a lot of the users here. And even those of you who dont hate them, constantly refer to them as "Microshaft" or "Micro$oft" MS is a wonderful company that has built the most user friendly OS on the market, and devoted itself whole heartedly to improving it continually. Their OS has the largest software base, and the highest QUALITY software. For example, Gimp for Linux sucks compared to Photoshop. I also find it funny that many people who despise them, still use all their products!! Even the users who use linux use MS OS emulators so they can run the most common programs. So i guess my question is, "Why all the beef?"
