I though Microsoft was the big evil corporation that everyone should hate even pre-Win95.
Na they're just a corporation with bad tech support that makes ultra defective products. Mainly XBOX.
MS still makes great OS'es and software, and that's what they were and still are good at
What I hate however is how Microsoft seems to be expanding into every single possible division where they think they can make a profit, gaming is one of those divisions
Sony started making consoles only because of the Betrayal from Nintendo and because they were pushed towards this
Microsoft joined the Console market ONLY and ONLY because of potential profit
the first Xbox was OK but the 360 is absolutely terrible, and I don't think it's going to get any better at this point, you also have to take into consideration that Microsoft has done literally Zero innovation in the industry and has done nothing but bad for it
At this point, we might start seeing "Microsoft Bread" and "Microsoft Milk"
Speaking of which...I also remember when Microsoft game studios used to publish very good games on the PC, nowadays though...well...you already know that they published nothing good this gen
95 and 98 were very big leaps in computing and changed a lot of things, Win8 however seems to be going the "Ipad" route, simplifying everything to heck and making everything "giant buttons"
anyway, that's just me rambling
Win8 seems to be cool but I think the guys in Redmond are getting crazy. Very crazy. EDIT: MS made a console because some guy who went hiding in Redmond's MS building pursuading MS to make a console.
