Why do I see so many people who hate Microsoft around here? They always say all Microsoft wants is your money, or whatever, but that's what most company tend to want, and Bill Gates is a pretty freakn cool guy lol.

Bill Gates was just some college student, big woop. He started making computer code for some computers called Altiars, which eventually led him to stealing Apples GUI idea for computers (after they stole it from xerox) and then pushed his OS using Direct X.

If anybody doesn't know what that means, I'm basically saying, Microsoft is a very important figure in computer software progress, and video games in America progress. Games, oh so long ago, were written on DOS, which came from Microsoft (not really, but they bought it off some sucker for some cash LULZ) which leads to a lot of gaming as we know it today. Now, imagine what it would of been like if Steve Jobs never had competition? We would all be using a religion I mean mac instead of PC's and games would be nothing like you know them today.

The fact is, gaming has come as far as it has today, largely because of Microsoft, and a lot of other things that you like were brought to you by Microsoft, so why all the hate? No, you don't have to particularly like a company, but why bash something you don't really even know anything about except a Xbox 360?

PS. Al Gore created the internet, why didn't you fuckers vote for him! If he had been president, we would be in flying cars right now instead of economic rescission!


I'm guessing the last part is sarcasm.

I don't really hate Microsoft itself I actually prefer PCs over Macs simply because Macs confuse me and annoy me.

I don't like companies who just plainly use money to bully other companies and such, but its business I guess. I'm not a big fan of powerhungry powerhouses... Well ones that just use money -_-"

I don't really bash Microsoft just the 360 itself sometimes. No one said anything about Bill Gates being a douche(I don't think) I mean hes giving away like 99.9% of his money to charities when he dies.

Hell, almost all his money goes to charities now.

And no way the last part was sarcasm! With Gore as a president we would all be flying in our fuel efficient cars that run on air and exploring deeper parts of space with newly made rockets!

Also xbox games ported on the PC you have pay that stupid xbox live fee in order to play online games on your PC thats horrible.



The issue is fixed... get accurate information and facts to back things up There is only 3 versions of the 360 and the 60gig change was cause making 20gig concoles cost the same/more than making there 60gig counterparts. Most people who hen throught more than 2 xboxs have serious issues in looking after there stuff. *dont leave it in a very small space even PS3 overheats in those situations but luckly it turns it self off*. Anyone loving the new 360 price cuts?


xp owns, granted Vista kinda sucks but Im using it for 1 year and have no issues...and if you do wait a little while longer till its 'perfected' (Vista is waaay less buggy now).


My main problems with Vista is that is a resource hog, so unless I get Vista Ultimate (the 64bit version assuming theres a 32 bit one) I will have a gig of ram that I want to use eaten up.



I totally agree with this point thats why so many people have issues running it. Your need a decent computer to even run it without and programs running on top. I get no real issues cause I have a decent computer and a amazing laptop.


P.S I hate alienware much much more there products have like an extra £400 ($800) slaped on just for the logo.

Hell yeah dude I built a alien ware computer on the site and was paying over 2k then I built it with parts from newegg.com and it was like, WOW RIP OFF MUCH ALIEN WARE?

Well, that's what I was gonna say. :0


Honestly that's how I feel. I played Halo and was disappointed. It's not that I hate microsoft but they tend to have too much over-hyped games. I really don't see how the halo series can become so popular. I've been a gamer since I was born. Yeah that's right! I was born with a controller in my hand. I give games a honest chance and not judge them by word of mouth. It's just annoying for people to praise Halo or they think they know what a game should be because they hopped on the halo train or fable train.


Let's not get started over how many people fapped over the arrival of Halo 3. ¦0 That was a scary 2 months.... Halo this, Halo that. I'm glad I didn't fork out some well earned bucks for the 360 when I hear about its problems and... RED RING OF DEATH.


Not to mention it's a computer in a console disguise. ¬¬


Everyconsole has a graphics unit, RAM, and a Processor, so they are all computers.

But they don't all have a Hard Drive, Cd writing Software, External Processors and Internet connection, now do they?

I know thats why I told all of my friends and family to never buy alienware products and look else were! I kinda like dell caue the prices are amazingly cheep and it covers a wide range of computer specs (I dont get why Dell gets branded for being crappy cause it all depends on what parts you buy)

Ermmm.....nearly every new concole has a Hard Drive (where else will we store our games, memory cards lol), the processors makes it much easier to make games on it and also means it will be better (FFS would you want a shit concole that isnt like a computer or a good one that is). Internet connection- well yes I like playing online.


Jesus your whole point is stupid....I think nearly everyone would agree

Technically speaking Microsoft got their first contract that established them as the dominate OS through corporate spying (illegal-ish) and kept it that way through many suspect tactics, including holding a large amount of Apple shares (monopoly charges etc). I have both a mac and a PC (use pc for games) and mac is by far the better OS: force quiting actually closes an application instead of taking 10 minutes and glitching my screen, I can't tell you how many times I've had to reinstall the driver for my video card. I haven't tried Vista yet, but it hear it's even worse. I loved Halo 3 but the 360 is alright, I can't say the ps 3 is any better. I do know a lot of people who've had their xbox360 ruined because they tripped over the cord or something. That's a real easy way to lose $300.

Sarcasm...not very obvious when there are no facial expressions or any hints (e.g you have allot of friends...)
like those 3 dots (the name excapes me) or even a smilie. I love it when people say something stupid and use the sarcasm card to 'fix' there error. Why did you make the oirginal statment cause it surly was not sarcastic! Have you heard that sarcasm is the lowest from of wit.
