Microsoft Whether you like Microsoft or not, the Redmond giant does have one thing going for it: the company's research division. Working together with several universities and other institutions, Microsoft Research works on the soft and hardware of the future, ranging from research operating systems to insanely cool things like what Microsoft's chief research and strategy officer Craig Mundie showed off during the Microsoft College Tour '09 (more videos).

They may be well removed from the rest of the company, but they can only bring forward, pardon my expression, crap. To many security holes. They need to get rid of registry, they need to make it an OS without holes (security vulnerabilities). They also need to make it more modular so that if a virus gets into a third party software it will stay in that software. When you have people actually endorsing wiping the hard drive and reinstalling every 3 months to maintain functionality, there is something wrong.
