Microsoft is nothing but a glorified techno-whore that seeks to monopolize everything and stamping out all competition! I suppose it could be worse really...we could all be forced to downgrade to DOS systems. I whole heartedly feel that there has got to be something that will come around within the next 20 years that will erase Microsoft out of the number 1 spot...probably something better looking and more accurately functioning with twice as much corporate corruption...it seems to be the trend of things anyway.
