Microsoft...ughhhh There are some things that I don't get about this company. First of all, why I shall pay so much money for a OS that is sold in ...plastic box :/ wtf?...Why does this company still keep its policy on 'form over substance' level. When I try to buy Ubuntu, it is delived burnt on a DVD in small, thin paper cover and that's it because it is enough. It is a software not a pair of sneakers or exclusive fountain pens that should be packed in a nice box. What is more Linux can be downloaded for free which makes things even worse for Microsoft, RedHat for example, and you pay 25 USD for subscription, not mentioning other 100 distributions of Linux. And what makes things even worse and worse for Microsoft is that some of Microsoft employees worked/work on Linux code making it better so it is like an own goal But...Microsoft is not all the bad, it has some good ideas too. Server 2008 is a quite a nice product (GUI or Core versions). I also consider Windows XP, 2000 and Windows 7 as nice OSes (but W7 it is too much secured for home user so this is a big disadvantage). I've not got to like W8 (sorry M ) Obviously Me, Vista are disaster zones for me.
