They are doing that as we speak: Sun, Novell, Apple, all of them, albeit with their own brands of bogus advertising. Microsoft got where they are by pushing limits, and I think that this time they might have pushed a bit too hard on people who don't feel like wasting time with them.

>"Microsoft got where they are by pushing limits"

Thats really only a fraction of it... they got to where they are by utilizing illegal business practices and stealing intellectual property. if that's "pushing the limits" then so be it, but I feel thats important to clarify as some might think that Microsoft got to where they are today buy offering a better product and then marketing it more aggressively.
