Microsoft Intelectual Property?

MS's intellectual property - that they generally steal or copy from everyone else - and they proclaim they are the great innovators - when they bring it out - like 5 or 6 or 7 years after everyone else has done it....

Microsoft's operating systems are a great leaps forward - like most of their operating systems, tend to vary from shit to really really bad.

"Ooooo you mean that with MS's firewall and squillion security patches and malware removers - that one tiny little worm can sneak in, shut all the systems down and open the PC to the web - and nothing MS has can shut it down?"

Down goes one's data and operating system in a spectacular flaming wreck like a space shuttle with a wee dent in the heat tiles.....

And then toss in their predatory and dishonest corporate bullying - to eliminate all competition - of stuff that is generally wayyyyyyyyyy better than theirs....

That's called anti trust......

The latest abortion of a office suite is just a dog terd wrapped in tinsel - with some marginal improvements; but most of it is just a con job to force everyone to play along with the never ending cash cow of the Microsoft Upgrade cycle....

MS's software is such crap I and an awful lot of other people even refuse to use the pirated copies of their software.......

Who gives a rats arse about Microsoft and their intellectual property?

Linux is the best thing that has ever happened to me - a HUGE thankyou to the people who helped make this all possible.
