Why is there so much MS hate in the world??

A couple of reasons (as I understand it):

1) They're Microsoft, and they don't care!

2) You can't buy a computer without Windows installed.

3) They upgrade and change file formats on a whim, and if the rest of your group doesn't upgrade, they are hopelessly lost with incomplete compatibility.

4) Many of the commenters like Linux.

5) It is an easy target.

I suspect that reason #5 is the most common. Others will probably add reasons in future comments, feel free.
