Microsoft is shit magnet

Sorry for the lack of better title, but yet another company that has failed to create compelling product/service and is now suing Microsoft for their own negligence. I guess when your are number one company in the world with $40 billion in reserves, then you are going to attract shit like that. I guess you got to find a source of profit somewhere, I just didn't expect that it would be in others companies pockets.

In a new suit that echoes earlier charges from Netscape, Sun Microsystems and others, Microsoft is accused of bullying companies out of using products and stealing the streaming company's technology. The suit, filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, claims Microsoft's upcoming video encoding and decoding product, Corona, includes Burst's patented video-delivery technology. The company also alleges that Microsoft pressured partners and customers, including Intel and RealNetworks, into dropping support for Burst technology. And it claims Microsoft intentionally caused Burst's products to be incompatible with Windows software.

Hey. don't have a crack at Bill. MIcrosoft hasn't been his in years. Ballmer is the problem - no style and no class. Used cars and tin sidings is more his style.

Almost everyone that wrote on this post is a FVCKING R3TARD. Macs and PCs are both sh1t for many reasons. Microsoft is a piece of and shit and apple is almost as bad. Microsoft is shit because of windows vista, microsoft office 2007, shi77y xbox 360 controllers, and xbox 360 that explode every 2 seconds. Apple is sh1t because of itunes, because of Mac OS, because everything they make has a layer of child friendly, tard friendly spunk over it. I hate microsoft and apple. I cant live without a computer so i have to use a pc, I would NEVER buy a fVcking mac. I have used a mac constantly of the course of 2 days almost smashed it, no programs would run, all the software that comes with it is SH1T etc...

I've been having trouble with ie 7 (shit) after spending 70 xp home real because my custom built pc the loser instaled a copy, and because it's oem if i want help from microsoft 40

12:49:20 EST Mar. 14 2010 #

OOOh, I know that problem. You've paid for XP but your preloaded system rejects it and you have to face the next few weeks trying to get your system to work .. AND your new system is so quick you can't get in to your POST settings .. not funny. Especially as I'm trying to run a business. NOT Ballmer's problem though as he is running a fascist and dictorial organisation. Count the days Steve.

Can A Mac Do Microsoft 3-D Flip?

Guess Not...

Apple is for design junkies and wannabe cool ppl. Apple has more "outdated bollox PC technology" in its belly than ever before. They're mostly going with standard PC components, otherwise things like Bootcamp wouldn't be possible. The only more advanced thing with Apple is the OS.
This PC bashing in favor of Apple is just ridiculous.

Microsoft is shit. I agree, but i wouldnt be able to cope without a windows pc, i would need a pc and then a mac to, well pc for gaming and mac for my design needs. I build websites before any of you say i am a wannabe designer so most of you can shut up, windows has it good and bad points and mac's do to so it is best to have both.

No it aint. I'm no Apple guru but the fact is that MS stuff sucks big time. My motherboard went awol the other day and it was cheaper for me to buy a new system - preloaded with windows 7 . Guess what ? f... all worked, including MS stuff. Having a Microsoft upgrade is like buying a car only to be told that you can only use microsoft fuel and by the way you need new seats and your stereo wont work.

microsoft software IS shit there hundreds of errors/problems that an intelligent schoolkid wouldnt make, eg i have windows mail and there is a setting under junk email options which allows you to set option 'no automatic filtering' but STILL microsh1t is forever applying its own censorship rules on MY email. mind you i guess thinking about it, microsh1t represents yanks and yankee land pretty well ~ arrogant lying pieces of scum

Totally agree, back in the 1970's, Billy-Bob Gates was eating too many Cuck Sandwiches without the Bread.... Microsoft is the US equivalent of Islam.

Microsoft should be sued to a black hole in space for the shit they keep releasing
