Damn all other systems to hell for not being able to overtake Windows as the dominant OS on the market.

A company that has created an operating system that'll eventually follow in the footsteps of VIKI on I, Robot. It'll first take your memory so you can't do anything without a 5 minute wait, then it'll procced to piss you off with error messages.
Person: Where has all my memory gone?
Windows XXP: I have removed it for you own safty, please remain calm.
Person: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Software company that produces the Windows series of operating systems. Founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen, and generally considered responsible for modern computing.

People like to knock their near-monopolistic control of the OS market but in truth, while at times unpleasant, its almost a necessity for widespread computing due to the way OS's work, and how software has to communicate with the OS. Those of you who dabbled with computing in the early '90s when many different computers/OS's on the market instead of just one know what I'm talking about; trying to find a particular piece of software compatible with your particular setup could be hell, and trying to code the stuff was even worse. Having a good compiler helped of course, but it had to be kept up to date on all the latest OS builds and/or you had to do all sorts of manual tweakage with the compiled code, neither of which was a particularly pleasant experience.

Aside from Windows, MS has released a number of things like DirectX to make programmers' lives easier. All in all they help more than they hurt.
An operating system is like the lines on the road, if everyone's not using the same one bad shit starts happening.

Pure Crap. The only good thing they've ever made is probably the xbox360 which is full of bugs and crashes (it's an unfinished product)

The day microsoft makes something that doesn't suck is the day they make vacume cleaners.
