Windows We're really on the subject of software installation issues on OSNews lately, and this story, making its rounds on the internet, fits in quite well. Back in the day, during the antitrust lawsuits against Microsoft, Microsoft had to make a whole slew of corporate email public. In light of Gates' imminent withdrawal from Microsoft, SeattlePI dug up a little gem among these emails, one in which Bill Gates goes on a full-blown rant about the difficulties he had trying to download and install Windows MovieMaker, back in 2003.

But think if this happened at Apple.

Jobs wouldn't be sending an email, he'd be in someones (or several someones) faces, exploding and covering them with froth and spittle.

So what you're saying is that Gates is more professional than Jobs.
Being in your subordinates face spitting and frothing isn't good management.
