Talking Anti Microsoft thread !!


Hi people....

this thread is an ANTI MICROSOFT THREAD...
pour in your ANTI MICROSOFT FACTS AND JOKES.
Also Microsoft supporters can defend.


Here is one for starters...
Quote:
Interesting facts about Bill Gates

1. Bill Gates earns US$250 every SECOND, that's about US$20 Million a
DAY and US$7.8 Billion a YEAR!

2. If he drops a thousand dollar, he won't even bother to pick it up
bcoz the 4 seconds he picks it, he would've already earned it back.
3. The US national debt is about 5.62 trillion, if Bill Gates were to
pay the debt by himself; he will finish it in less then 10 years.
4. He can donate US$15 to everyone on earth but still be left with
US$5 Million for his pocket money.
5. Michael Jordan is the highest paid athlete in US. If he doesn't
drink and eat, and keeps up his annual income i.e. US$30 Million,
he'll have to wait for 277 years to become as rich as Bill Gates is
now.
6. If Bill Gates was a country, he would be the 37th richest country
on earth.
7. If you change all of Bill Gate's money to US$1 notes, you can make
a road from earth to moon, 14 times back and forth. But you have to
make that road non-stop for 1,400 years, and use a total of 713
BOEING 747 planes to transport all the money.
8. Bill Gates is 40 this year. If we assume that he will live for
another 35 years, he has to spend US$6.78 Million per day to finish
all his money before he can go to heaven.

Last but not the least:

If Microsoft Windows' users can claim US$1 for every time their
computers hang because of Microsoft Windows, Bill Gates will be
bankrupt in 3 years!

Members probably aren't that interested cause well, we have had our share of Windows/Microsoft bashing threads, etc. Its just simply getting old. You should have really just contributed to the existing Microsoft/Windows VS Linux or Microsoft Bashing threads, we have plenty of them out there and quite frankly, don't need yet another one to tell you the truth.

And to tell you the truth, I don't like threads that are only brought up to bash others, even if it is Microsoft. I don't use their products anymore, I can care less!

Hmmm... I think this thread is politically incorrect. Like, how do you people may feel seeing an "Anti-Linux thread" somewhere? I don't love Windows and don't use it, but it gives me no option to post an "Anti" threads because Windows is still used by people around the world and this is their choice that we all have to respect. You so proud being Linux users and say that M$ sucks, Windows sucks and Bill Gates sucks...why you remember that they exist?! You don't use it, that's all, Bill Gates didn't got your money. Just forget about it and spend your energy in learning your favorite OS.

there's far too many of these threads, and i jsut don't understand the point of them. It's just preaching to the converted. There is (virtually) no one to convince here, and bashing for the sake of it seems just petty.
