Has Microsoft finally gone to far with Vista? [Yes. Greed. Vanity.]

Funny Thing - M$

,----[ Quote ]
| Last night Joe and I got in this huge discussion, and I was cursing out 
| Microsoft. It’s been rough the past couple of days and M$ has not been making 
| my life very easy. Every time I turn around I have to ghetto-fy my web sites 
| to make them work in IE…   
| See… There are these things called Web Standards which were put into place to 
| make web designer’s lives easier. As in, if they script to web standards, 
| then all standards compliant browsers will show the site exactly correct. 
| Well, I always script to web standards. The PROBLEM is that Microsoft decides
| that they are just going to do things THEIR way...    
| [...]
| Besides the fact that all of the Microsoft employees I have ever encountered 
| must have been brainwashed. I don’t know where they dig these people up. 
| [...]
| And if they AREN’T brainwashing them, then they are just hiring incompetant, 
| pompous dumbasses. And if either is the case, why should anyone support their 
| company?  


Microsoft : Arrogance leads to Vulnerability

,----[ Quote ]
| Chatting with the Microsoft senior sales people, I was struck by
| their incredible arrogance. They know the company?s products are good,
| but they have no qualms whatsoever about charging top dollar as a
| result.
| It reminds us how Microsoft used to behave when it comes to their
| products' security records. IE5 and 6 were nothing short of being
| proper Swiss Cheese with loads of holes in them but hey, they had 95%
| of the browser market at that time and couldn't care less.


Microsoft Is Sheer Arrogant Claim Xbox 360 Customers

| "Sheer arrogance from MS and they have lost what was once a loyal customer, 
| I will never purchase another MS product again!! As a consumer I expect 
| and Demand to be treated better than that or simply put I will take my 
| business elsewhere!"


How Microsoft Refused to Speak With Me About Windows Error Reporting

,----[ Quote ]
| Have you ever wondered what really happens to those Windows error reports you 
| can send to Microsoft whenever a Windows app crashes? How many reports it 
| must receive before taking action? Or whether it's worth your time and effort 
| to send duplicate reports if the error occurs repeatedly?   I did, and I 
| asked Microsoft. Unfortunately, after a week and a handful of assurances that 
| they were working on responses, the software giant refused to speak with me.
