Why is Microsoft listed as ''One of the worst companies in America''?

Im sure some of u have seen that today the voting started but I dont understand why Microsoft is in that list.
Im sure we have some well educated people on here to explain, Im not too familiar with Microsoft and their reputation, if that matters.
They even released the xboxOne recently

No idea, people don't seem to realise if it weren't for MS we'd probably all be using Mac OS now

Because gamers on the internet are mostly cry babies.

Well I dont think Microsoft was in that list in previous years, as far as I know....

Probably because of windows 8....it sucks... they didn't listen at all to consumers until it affected their bottom line. Windows 7 was great...why cant they just improve on the good instead of trying to rei-nvent the wheel and failing at it.

Oh i dunno, maybe because they thought everyone was dumb enough to buy a console that limited used games, had drm and a camera that always had to be on.

Well they have been pretty bad as of late, Windows 8 is an absolute travesty but like I said, Mac OS

A fate worse than hell IMO

Why do people keep saying windows 8 sucks? I used it first and thought so too, but after learning all it's bells and whistles it the best OS behind xp ever IMO.

Oh god the horror... I got nothing against people who manage to use it but I hated it. I'd use Linux before I pay double to get a just as capable PC that leaves me way more freedom.

Oh and Windows 8is awesome and with a touchscreen even more awesome.
