People sometimes ask me why I dislike Microsoft. The answer is simple: I don’t — I’ve just been disappointed with much of what it’s done in the past decade.
This disappointment stems from the 1990s, when I was a big fan of many Microsoft products (and incidentally, could not stand Apple products). But over the past 10 years, I’ve slowly transitioned away from almost everything made by the company. It’s not what I set out to do, it just happened because better products came along — products not made by Microsoft.
