Yes that is true, hatred for MS from those that were put out of business by their predation — but for me it is not necessary to lug around either the cost nor the lack of performance as more devices get weaker and smaller. You pay for all the unused capability.

These days email and browser do most of what many need. The only application left that I use that needs more is Quicken, but even they are going online.

And this is where google is headed with their chrome OS.

Even HP is switching to Palm for their nettops and tablet OS.

And then there is free Linux like Ubuntu 10.4 if you really need a full featured OS. But to most it’s just an encumbrance.
