I'm sure that Microsoft are used to the FUD that is aimed against them by now. It doesn't seem to stop them being a very successful company.
I really don't understand why people who are so dissatisfied with them continue to use their products.
Successful maybe, but also one not to be trusted and it is about time the world saw sense and look at what Ms can do. Get companies and governments to use the software and then change the rules an d what can these companies and government do but to follow the rules. It is not as if they can change over night to another Os, because to be honest what else is available?
Linux/unix is there yes, but apart from maybe servers it is not really used elsewhere and the software is not available anyway.
Apple would be no different to Microsoft if they have the monopoly either.
People have very little choice now but to use MS software, myself included.
The reason MS got to where they are is because they was in the right place at the right time and gave people the ease to use computers, not because their software is any good.
We have the same problem in this country with Sky, a monopoly that seems to do what they want and now look at what we got. But Sky having a monopoly is not dangerous, people just can't watch what they like unless they pay for it, that is not going to bring the country or the world to a standstill. But Microsoft can, give it time and we will be paying through the nose for their software, already their office software have gone subscription.
I trust MS as much as I trust Intel, Adobe, our government and U.S government.
One day the world will wake up
