Windows More news on Windows 8. This time around, Gabe Aul, a director of program management in Windows, blogged about the changes Microsoft has made to Windows 8's boot process. The results are impressive - a boot time not much slower than waking from sleep on current Windows 7 and Mac OS X machines. This is, of course, a vital component of getting Windows NT ready for tablets.

No you weren't being supportive of Microsoft ... it was a cheapshot.

Windows Vista Service Pack 2 and Windows 7 are so stable ... fast (yes fast unless you have really crap hardware and most modern Linux distros will also run like crap on them).

Considering Windows has been ported to ARM pretty easily considering it is probably in excess of 100 million lines of code actually suggests they are fucking excellent system engineers.

Slag Microsoft off all you want ... you won't change the fact that many people use Windows everyday with zero problems ... I have never needed to drop to the command line to fix a problem with Windows.

The fact is that Microsoft haters like yourself pretty much have nothing else to slag Microsoft off about other than "freedomz", ancient business practices (which many of the competitors have done the same which are now proponents of Linux), it isn't *nix based and that The OS doesn't run that well on computers that are considered ancient now.
