Money Grubbing Evil Empire - New comment on Microsoft's 2008 - What's Going Well?
SiGiD has left a new comment on your post "Microsoft's 2008 - What's Going Well?":
I am completely astonished at the kind of thought process that could result in a conclusion anything like "Microsoft no longer being perceived as the Evil Empire".
Must be from an Empire Insider; everyone in the real world knows differently.
VISTA - the OS that does nothing well even when given high-end hardware to run on EXCEPT frustrate the user endlessly (tried a large file copy lately?);
DRM - only a money-grubbing Evil Empire could think to force the purchasers of their OS to include such an abomination that provides the user with no benefit and a real disadvantage in favor of MS's profit;
Visual Studio and .NET - enough said about these particular stinkers;
Opposes any and all "Open" software and standards in favor of privately owned and proprietary (read: profitable);
...I have to pick someplace to stop, so let it be here. But to think that MS is *not* the Evil Empire, and growing more evil every day, is wishful thinking!
