Microsoft Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer had some interesting things to say yesterday about which companies Microsoft sees as its competitors in the client operating system space. You'd think Apple was their number one competitor - and you'd be wrong. Microsoft sees two other competitors as their primary adversaries.

I contribute Microsoft's losing my business to Microsoft. They ran me off by choosing to focus on things other than making computing more productive and less annoying. Instead, they make computing miserable by focusing on protecting themselves from piracy and vendor lock-in.


I couldn't have said it better myself. Hell, it's almost like you read my mind. Another thing I have noticed. I don't feel like I am being bombarded with advertisements all the time. When I used windows, I paid good money to have advertisements from any company that bought ad space in every program. Microsoft only cares about money, not about the people using their product.

I will admit I have a Microsoft comfort curve keyboard, I love it. I have another in the box still just in case this one ever breaks. It's a wonderful keyboard. I'll agree with you about not buying their software, but damn they make a good keyboard.
