Why do you keep posting this crap. M$ does not control all of your IT needs, you do have choices in what machine/os you use.

I DON'T WANT TO BE A SLAVE TO M$

I personally remember back before OS/2, Desqview, and Windows was out that each program had wierd sets of hotkeys to do functions, every program was different (you have cutouts for templates on your keyboard because of all the key combinations, like in wordperfect).

NOT ON AMIGA

Each program had to have drivers for your specific printer, and what you seen on the screen was not exactly how it looked printed. There was no multitasking, no cut and past, basically no standards for interfacing hardware to software. Each card needed jumpers to set.

NOT ON AMIGA

Computers are a tool, and tools should be a commodity. To be a commodity there needs to be standards and for better or worse M$/Intel made these standards.
They only made themselves the standard by controlling the distribution channel, butchering fellow software developers and evil ethics. They are the standard by spilling the blood of many developers and stealing their ideas. Fall in love with that if you must. Do you work for M$?
