> ISO ballot stuffing over OOXML
Name a company that doesn't lobby for their interests. Google lobbied for ODF but both are published and independently maintained standards. Just because one has become an article of religious fiath for the F/OSS crowd doesn't mean the other isn't open.
> Patent threats against Android.
Assume that all those companies pay up not because they're scared of the big bad Beast of Redmond ( I very much doubt that Samsung are scared, for example) but rather because the patents hold up. If that's the case, would you rather MS just gave their work away? Do you think their shareholders would like that?
> Windows tax (refunds no longer possible).
That's more about OEMs than MS and you know it.
> ODF FUD
Office supports ODF as detailed above.
> Secure Boot (MS made sure the implementation was fecked and that they control the keys)
Now this is FUD. MS use a part of the UEFI standard and in order to gain certification, OEMs must enable the user to turn off secure boot in UEFI. Either you have no idea what you're ranting about or... well, you already know the "or".
So basically, your objections are religious, then?
