    Microsoft

    I think Microsoft is secretly trying to monopolize on the .net extension in the address bar with this .NET thing.
    Soon perfectly good websites with .net extensions are going to have Microsoft hanging over them.

    This is just as bad... Watching AOL/ Time taking over the world while Microsoft takes over the computer world.

    I guess I disagree with everyone who hates Microsoft, because they make good products, that's why there were and are able to dominate the industry so well. As for the pricing of their products, that is my only complaint, but seriously, who buys software? (I have DSL and Morpheus for a reason )

    Microsoft - Too costly
    AOL - Too unreliable

    Microsoft's success has far more to do with patent lawers than anything else. See IBM for further reading.

    M$ also sent me a monthly mag with my MSVC studio in which it states that Aussies are good hackers cause we can fix anything with a stick and fencing wire.

    Well I know where I want to put the stick but whats the wire for?

    To keep it there?
