What I like about Microsoft

  • It just works.  At least at first, until you install a few more programs or visit a few web sites.  After this, you'll need to scan for Adware and Viruses and visit some forums.  Then it will just work again for a while, if you're lucky.

  • Visual Basic for Applications

  • The software has a largely consistent look and feel.  Apple scores well here also.  However Windows software can be found in greater abundance, which is a plus.

  • Despite the plethora of problems that can plague Windows, you can almost always find a solution because Windows usage is so predominant that almost certainly soneone has posted a solution.
