Hardware, Embedded Systems So, we have Microsoft slowly but surely trying to be a better citizen in the computing world - with the emphasis on trying. After years of dragging their feet, the company is finally implementing web standards in Internet Explorer, there's a boatload of interoperability information now, that sort of stuff. And then, just when you think they're starting to get it - they go behind our backs to do something incredibly insipid. It's small, you'll barely notice it, but dear lord, it's really, really annoying.

Like if they really care with all the billions of customers and money they already have.

You remind me of this guy:

So Microsoft makes an OS that slows down the more you use it without an easy way to reinstall without losing data. The user tries to fix this with 'solutions' from the internet. This makes the OS even more buggy and slow. And even though MS created this problem. You point to the user because he should change his behavior to keep the system optimally running.
