"Loathe" is pretty much right, too.

Thinking back of Microsoft products people don't loathe:
1) Windows, for about 5-10 years
2) DOS. No one loathed it, but no one really liked it
3) Paint!
4) Hotmail, until Gmail
5) Office, but arguably Excel is the only product that, uh, excels (sorry, had to)
6) Windows Phone. Like DOS, no one loathes it, but it isn't exactly widely appreciated. Still, if you're looking for a list of Microsoft brands that aren't loathed, you take what you can get rather than look for successes

To be fair, 1,2, and 5 are are only on the list because there aren't or weren't any real competitors to take their place for the average person and 4 didn't even start as a Microsoft product, they bought out the company. You could also argue that 3 is only there because it's pretty much ignored, the only time anyone uses it is if they don't have anything better on that system.
