oh geez, dont be so dramatic. They're a tech company, and when they fail at something, a bunch of gamers on a blog get mad. At the company I work for, when we fail, a wellhead explodes and people die. So I'm sorry if I dont quite get so up in arms because you dont like the loss of the start menu, that doesn't qualify as incompetence as I know it.

Dramatic? You just unironically tried to compare a life and death scenario to what you call a blog discussion and you have probably 20+ posts in this thread on the subject. Perhaps you shouldn't be accusing others of drama. I was just pointing out that it's not exactly a difficult leap to see that repeated failures in consumer markets combined with bad PR has lead to a shitty reputation with consumers.

A vocal internet minority doesn't mean 'everyone' hates Microsoft and people can still criticize or be cynical about Microsoft products without 'hating' the whole company.
