Windows "Yesterday my desktop died, and so I went ahead and got a brand new Windows 8 laptop. It's always been my feeling that as years go on, user experience has been going down for people who use a computer and the Internet, because of decisions all companies make that are clearly anti-user, either because they think they know best, or in many cases, for financial gains. But from spending all night reinstalling everything and customizing the laptop, I realized just how bad it has become." Probably the biggest reason to go Mac or Linux. Such a shame Microsoft found it more important to pressure OEMs into silly Secure Boot nonsense instead of doing something about the anti-user crapware disaster. Goes to show who Microsoft cares about. Hint: it ain't you.

Microsoft has an uncanny ability to live and retain the market domination through constant acts of shooting itself. Well, sooner or later it should have an effect?

No, They don't die by bullets, only fire.

That's what a monopoly is, people whether they like it or not, have to buy their stuff.

Unless Android moves to the desktop (I know a lot of people who would like that) it's unlikely anything will replace Windows.

Of course they could always take back that jack*** from Nokia and put him in Ballmer's shoes. Nothing burns hotter and brighter than greed fueled by stupidity.
