This is exactly why i hate Microsoft.

Lol, you should know that many other companies do the same thing. But what's the point in spewing facts at a brick wall...

what ideas have they "stole".

if you say something stupid like tablets, ill punch u in the throat

Zune LOL
The undeniable similarities to OSX in Windows Vista and 7
Avatars on the XBox
How about opening the "Microsoft Store" beside Apple Stores around the world.

I am on windows 8. Not that bad as people have been screaming about for desktop. It's faster and more responsive even on a 2007 lappy.
