"Consumers have turned their backs on Microsoft. A company that once symbolized the future is now living in the past. Microsoft has been late to the game in crucial modern technologies like mobile, search, media, gaming and tablets.

I hope this isn't true because even though I hate, no hate is a strong word I want a stronger word =P ... I despise the XBOX 360(older version) for how badly it's built, it's designed and assembled so cheap just to maximize profit and how many times it's broken on me but I like Microsoft's Operating Systems overall.

And also even though Kinect has NO good games out or even announced yet, I think it has quite alot of potential so hopefully they're not a 'dying consumer'.

"Maximum, Game".


I'm not sure where this information is coming from since Microsoft just reported one of their best quarters in company history.

i think there is one thing windows needs to do and it is to get there new kernel into there next os instead of stay using dos and apple is really cheating they use a free base program (linux) and makes an os from it and sells it really expensive ow yea dn if windows uses singularity than blou screens of dead will never happen again

they hit the lowest point with vista but now they're pulling back up, cant really blame microsoft for PCs selling lower than expected, the windows phone 7 looks like a blast, they learned from mobile 6.5 and vista and i like my win7 OS but it is kinda expensive..even Rod said it last time in live show..remember thoses days?

I have a gaming PC and all gaming consoles and it definately doens't get you laid!

I don't agree either. I think Windows Phone 7 will be a major step forward for Microsoft in the mobile phone/tablet market.


i also do not agree.
