Well, today’s the official launch of Windows XP. Microsoft deserves credit for finally coming up with a consumer OS that doesn’t crash all the time.
But the control-freak stuff, and Microsoft’s relentless push to bring people into its own product orbit, is too much for me. I won’t be buying XP or using it (except to test features).
I’m still going to try Living Without Microsoft…
Whatever you think about Microsoft or its business practices, give the company and Bill Gates a nod for holding the launch in New York.
UPDATE: Microsoft backpedals on MSN browser block. Microsoft did an about-face Thursday by opening the redesigned MSN.com Web site to some third-party browsers.
