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.
