I agree. The only people who believe Microsoft is the best software
producer are hiding from the facts. Microsoft is a large, inefficient
and corrupt organization that needs to get purged by the DOJ. When was
the last time Microsoft produced an application that used less hard disk
space and memory than the previous version? never. Compare that too
Linux (the kernel) and the size as stayed around the same, mem
requirements around the same, yet more functionality is bought to the
platform. Microsoft should learn a thing or two from such companys as
QSSL and BeOS, on how to write a decent OS from the ground up, with
fully documented API's and emphasis put on efficient programming.
