Windows We're really on the subject of software installation issues on OSNews lately, and this story, making its rounds on the internet, fits in quite well. Back in the day, during the antitrust lawsuits against Microsoft, Microsoft had to make a whole slew of corporate email public. In light of Gates' imminent withdrawal from Microsoft, SeattlePI dug up a little gem among these emails, one in which Bill Gates goes on a full-blown rant about the difficulties he had trying to download and install Windows MovieMaker, back in 2003.

I just finished "The rise and fall of Commodore" in the loo (a good book but you're not really a fan of the Gould + Ali combo when you're done). The author gave billg quite some credits when it comes to programming.

I'd rather work at msft than apple without any hesitation whatsoever. Yes, Darth Ballmer and his evil sidekicks are part of the bargain, but Jobs is not and msft have some very cool stuff.

I have a 24" imac, Linux (FC & CentOS) and XP. I like all of them and I occasionally hate all of them.
