Bad Classic Operating Systems (was: Micro$oft Biz'droid Lusers)

Well ... since you've gone trolling ...

I can't remember a single widely used OS about which there weren't complaints
galore from the system programmers. The evolution of desktop PC's, however,
has made for lots of "system programmers" though in the current computing
world I doubt there are any more competent ones than in the '60's. There are,
of course millions claiming to be system programmers and claiming to know what
they're doing. There are, in fact, enough to go around.

I hardly believe Microsoft Windows to be the be-all and end-all of operating

I think the suggestion that Christopher Smith should give up his job just to
promote the interests of the Microsoft-haters, however right or wrong they may
be, is just plain stupid, and if he does that, as I said, he gets what he
deserves. Now, if you're willing to give him a job, that's great, but there's
no chance I'd hire anyone willing to follow such inane advice where employment
is concerned. Since giving bad advice can make you liable, while being stupid
enough to follow such advice can not, I'd be really careful about dispensing
such advice.
