Quick question from a "techie" from the Microsoft board:In the opinion of people posting here, to what extent do the technical merits of Microsoft products support your decision to purchase them? One of the things that surprised me during discussions on the MSFT board was not that people had different opinions about how well Microsoft software works, but that many posters felt it didn't matter; that Microsoft could be selling lumps of coal and still make a profit.Microsoft certainly has a grip on the desktop market right now, and compatability issues keep people purchasing the latest versions of operating system and office software. I'm just wondering whether people even think about the quality or ability of their software any more. Should Microsoft perhaps not even care about trying to improve the product any further? (Of course, this only applies to Microsoft's line of desktop products; it still has significant competition to overcome in server systems and embedded systems.)John
