People ask me why I don’t like Microsoft and then try to convince me that Windows is a great OS and that IIS is a great web server. Now, don’t misunderstand me. I don’t hate Microsoft software, I hate Microsoft. More specifically, I hate Microsoft’s incredibly unethical and monopolistic business practices.

What I don’t like is when Microsoft uses its monopoly position in the OS and Web browser markets to hurt the competition. What I don’t like is when Microsoft treats their customers like shit because they know they’ve got most of them locked into a technology choice.
