Ever considered that some people are bashing Microsoft for other reasons 
than tryiong to be funny?
Such as: There are actually legitimate concerns about the quality of 
their products.

And that deserves to be repeated, and pointed out time and time again, 
even if some don't think it's funny. Because without bringing up the 
actual problems, their products would probably be even more dominant, 
even when the problems sometimes are really serious.

Now - some people claim that there are no problems any more. Good for 
them. Others don't have the same experience/luck.


Sure: most people bash Microsoft to show that they're smarter than the
average (Microsoft) luser who needs to be *educated*; usually has the 
opposite effect.

I don't see many actual specific problems brought up, but if someone 
actually has some *useful* information then there are other forums for 
that, just like there are forums for problems with software that's *not* 
made by Bill's boys & girls.
