An open letter to Microsoft

Lets start with this shameful stuff you call and operating system, the Vista, why the hell did you have to do this to your own users. If we are talking about operating systems lets talk about the windows CE 2005 that was far to heavy to the Pocket PCs it was installed on and caused many users to stay with their old 2003 device and the market that was supposed to develop is simply dying. The Outlook, which so many mobile users depended on, have some deadly bugs that even its developers cannot tell how to fix them. Window Media 11, a total fiasco, worse then any previous version, oh, and I almost forgot the MSIE 7.0, god forbid, never seen anything worst then this one, you simply pushed people to use the Firefox, thanks for the security but if it prevents me of working the way I want I pass. The Office pack is still crashing and no wonder more and more users find it very smart to move to the Open Office (and yes free is still cheaper then what you charge for yours).And I havn't said anything about the .NET yet (this is a matter for a different letter)but I think you got the point here...   (Source: Come4news)
