I hate Microsoft. But still use them. Why?
Well it’s pretty obvious, they own the platform and operate a monopoly. Is it really worth it though? I remember the days when it was a pleasurable experience…error free experience. Microsoft have changed this, the place is now a hell hole. Linux are partly to blame, I’ll get on to that later, but Microsoft have put them in a difficult situation, increasing the number of software interoperability. When it takes longer to get everything working in harmony than the sum of parts, then you know something is wrong.
So what have Microsoft done to deserve my time spent writing this drivel?
Let’s start with the fantastic Office – what an amazing marketing idea that was.
So much so that most people using Word or Excel now pay for the whole suite.
I hope we’ll soon see users moving back in large numbers to free software like Google Docs.
I now will only use Microsoft as a last resort.
