  5. Absolutely! The context of the question makes all the difference … *and* having the surveyee understand the difference … ;)

    I think Microsoft rocks! Many of those who complain about it either know next to nothing about programming (I don’t consider writing scripts to compile and install linux programming.), but its just what people do.

    Then there are those who do know and used to use some MS product, had a bad taste and stopped using it for the past 5~10yrs, and yet continue to bitch about *new* products with the same arguments or flaws/bugs from *old* ones. I’ve personally met division managers claim that Windows is unstable and unwieldly. That writing programs for Windows is difficult etc etc. Then I asked him what system and language he was using. He said “Win3.11 and MSVC2.0″. I almost flipped out and wanted to rearrange his face. That happened sometime in 2001 when Windows 2000 Professional, Server, Adv Servers and even WindowsXP was already launched. VisualStudio.NET was I think either in beta (available thru Universal Subscription) or out. But this fella refused to use any new products for like 10 years and just kept repeating his bad experiences. *bum*

    There are a few good linux folks who had tried things on both sides and mostly they will give a slightly more unbiased views on Windows. They will list its strengths and weaknesses and then their own preferences, instead of going into a MS-bashing routine so typical of linux fans.

    I’ve been coding since mid80s on DOS, APPLE, UNIX, cygwin, Windows9x, WinNT, Win2k, WinXP, PalmOS, PPC, HPC, using either GW-BASIC, BASICA, BASICCOM, QBASIC, QuickBASIC, C/C++, VC++, C#, VB, VB.NET, scripts.

  7. But I’m open to hearing your reasoning behind the removal of most evidence of Microsoft’s logo and branding from xbox.

    To me it’s common sensical obvious. As in the most important video game market, Japan — a box with a Microsoft logo is a sure-fire death sentence. But all in the games, and a golden opportunity now that Sony hath stumbled and all geared repeat the same supply chain mistakes of Microsoft, so a Japan relaunch needed (and will happen), I predict. Better story this time around. But consumer electronics are not on the PC market, ’3 times to get it right’ mode. Eventually Microsoft will learn this, after billions more lost.

    Plus at the word “Microsoft”, most people immediately go blue screen mode, virus/malware/spyware problems, less functional and general all around ineptness. No one likes them, but everyone uses them, irony of it all. Striping the “Microsoft” branding from Xbox was about the only marketing thing they did right.

  9. I just bought an Xbox and I had to look very hard to find the word “Microsoft” anywhere on it.

    I noticed that a long time ago. Even the original xbox marketing and packaging put the Microsoft logo in an inconspicuous location (if at all). I think that’s because Microsoft is distancing its brand from the items it sells to consumers – a form of trickery, I believe – given that, in my experience, while people are resigned to using Microsoft’s products when they are handed to them, they are loathe to front their own money for them. Contrast that with Apple, the majority of whose sales are basically made and paid for by the end-user.
