The biggest piece of shit technology ever invented. Easy to get viruses, breaks down every other second; just absolute shit.

Let's go on to debunking common misconceptions about Windows...
1. "Windows crashes like every 5 seconds!!1!1OMG another blue screen!"
While Windows does crash, the amount of times it does and how often is usually dependent on many other factors, those factors involving how much people actually take care of their computers.
Since most people don't know how to simple things like defragment their hard drives every once in awhile, and not open every e-mail attachment they get, it's no wonder people have their computers crash all the time.
Out of the approximate 8 years that I've been using a computer running Windows, I have only gotten the BSoD twice. Twice. And they were both due to me running too many applications over night, anyway. Thank God it did too. I probably would've fried my HDD from the constant strain I was stupidly putting on the CPU.
Take care of your computer, and you don't get crashes. Simple as that.
2 "I'm always getting viruses!!11! Windows always gets viruses!11!! You need to have antivirus stuff!!!!1111!1one1"
Common sense (don't download and open every .exe application you see, you dolt. One of the many things people do.)
Windows has a majority of the market share, making it a prime target for malware writers.
3. "Windows security is a joke! So it's so easy to hack!!11!"
Only here will I give you compensation. Yes, Windows security is pretty bad.
But guess what? An IT tech friend of mine said that a Macintosh would take about a few minutes to hack into, and Linux would take about the same amount of time.
I bet no one ever considered the security of alternate operating systems besides Windows, because they're all pretty bad by themselves.
He even showed me how. And this friend is certified in computer security, so he would know. Stop listening to all that propaganda, people.
Microsoft Windows: use it right, and it won't fail you. I'm perfectly fine with the XP OS I've been running for quite some time. It has slowed down a bit from age, but I have never even defragged the hard drive due to memory constraints.

4.) cheap crap that never works.

guy_1; "yah! i installed it yesterday!"
guy_2; "oh, well there's your problem.."
guy_2; "it's running Microsoft Windows, so it's cheap junk that always get viruses & causes headaches."
guy_1; "dammit! i knew i should have bought a Mac or installed Linux!"
