I don't want to start an OS Bash-war, but just stating the facts;
as long as Microsoft has been releasing software, there's been an 
immediate rush, as soon as it was released, to update it because of 
-some- issue, be it compatibility, or security.  Bugs abound.

I was dumbfounded when Win'95 came out, and people were lined up at 
midnight to buy the software as soon as it was going to be available.  
Are you kidding me?  And now, Microsoft is trying to get into the 
cellphone business?  Is it any surprise that there's a "problem"?

"...Microsoft in a bad light..."  yeah, right!  They've done that to 
themselves for as long as I can remember, and I got into PC's about the 
time DOS went from 2.x to 3.0  There was DR-Dos, PC-Dos, a few other 
DOS's, including PC-MOS (predecessor to Linux?).... then MS-DOS came in 
and took over... and screwed things up.
