Give me a break, you'd be sitting in front of an abacus if Microsoft hadn't done what's it did over the past years. Where were all of the great OS writers when Microsoft was developing Windows? They could have done the same thing but none put the effort into it like MS did. I've heard all of the arguments, excuses, reasons and whining about Micosoft in my twenty plus years of programming and none hold water. It's real easy for all of the johnny come lately's to come along now after MS devoted years to it and more power to them but stop the whining about MS, it's just a hollow sour grapes argument ...There are a few things microsoft do right
Microsoft licensed MS-DOS to IBM, which produced IBM's minor variant PC-DOS. DOS still lives on, as most functions are supported under Windows and Linux.
I don't think so. Or -- if NotePad is one of MS' best, then the rest is pretty awful.Big-K said:...(snip). Whats worse is that notepad is probably the best piece of software/utility that ms has ever created(aside from DOS).
Wouldn't you if you could?My complaint is just that MS tries to corner the market in every way possible and not let in any competition
