The primary tactic of the anti-Microsoft crowd in this forum

Sad, really. They must have a lot invested in Google and Apple to spend so much time and effort at it. I guess it's their retirement plan in lieu of a real 401(k).

I've been silently following this forum for a couple of years and there has been a noticeable drop in participation by users with a positive view of Microsoft's products. I guess they've been driven away. So, congratulations to you, anti-MS people. You got what you wanted. Well played.
