Re: just to it
its the bashing them no matter what they do I find tedious
Thing is, for many of us, it's not bashing no matter what. It's bashing them when they deserve bashing, which is pretty much all the time. If they actually did something right, a lot of us would be the first to say so.
Of course, some may bash them no matter what, but any of us who bash them part of the time ended up being painted with the same brush.
Microsoft has enough history of bad behavior that assuming everything they do has a bad motive behind it isn't bashing-- it's the result of experience.
