Why Do Tech Bloggers Hate Microsoft?

You may love Microsoft or you may hate Microsoft, but if you step back for just a second and look at the big picture, it sure does seem like the Redmond giant gets more than its fair share of hate no matter what it does. A casual misstep made by any of the other big tech darlings — take Apple, Google, or Facebook, for instance — barely registers a blip on the blogosphere and media radar. If the same misstep is made by Microsoft, however, the community is up in arms with no end in sight. So why do tech bloggers hate Microsoft? Perhaps it's all just a matter of perception...
