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


That in itself is reason enough to nominate them.

How bout because they force Kinect on everyone who just wants an XB1 by itself? Or because they push digital downloads for games but advertise deals that are a joke? They've been advertising CoD Ghosts for $40 on demand for a week or two now, and the disc was on sale for $20 at the same time.

I refuse to buy XB1 until it's sold without Kinect. No, I'm not a Sony fanboy. See? http://viper.shadowflareindustries.com/images/myroom/DSCN0220.JPG

$40 is a lot cheaper than the disc based game here is and there is nothing wrong with kinect so eh.

Do you realize there are hundreds of other operating systems out there and if Microsoft never existed consumers would be using linux, bsd, some other version of doss, or maybe even the amiga os? The main difference between windows and the other operating systems is that Microsoft established a large-market a long time ago. Because of their market-share and legacy-effect they get the majority of the support while Microsoft's competitors get crumbs.

Microsoft is one of the worst companies because of their monopoly in the home computer market which is evident of their monopolistic business practices.

Microsoft is a monopoly because there is no compatible alternatives to windows, since there is no compatible alternatives to windows MS gets billions of dollars every year selling licenses of their software.

Microsoft made the list because Sony is a Japanese company. Between their banishment rooms, lying to customers and terrible management of their exclusives like Driveclub they should win.

Tc you need to be either upfront with your trolling or more subtle. Gotta commit son.

A monopoly on OS isn't exactly a bad thing as long as they are regulated, which is why MS has never been broke up like monopolies of old. Something like a OS being universal allows better compatibility between things because you know whats its running. MS competes with itself with its older OS. Its not like we are forced to upgrade every 3 year when they release their new OS. Look at 8 its so bad people dont even want to buy new PC's which has forced MS to basically abandon its vision and make it more like 7 which most people like.
