Geez, why? The only reason the Internet and Personal Computing in general is even possible on the scale we have become accustomed to is because it's STANDARDIZED and Microsoft has almost singlehandedly done this.
Microsoft is just the United States of the Computer World. They have done it better and been more successful than anyone so everyone else hates them. Guess computer users are just as petty and jealousy-prone as govenments are.

Rubbish. Microsoft had nothing to do with the Internet, hell they even ignored it until late 1995, early 1996 when they suddenly woke up and realised it wasnt a fad that was going to go away.
You do realise that the Internet dates all the way back to the late 1960s? Like way before Microsoft existed? And it was a huge success even then?
I repeat, MS had nothing to do with the Internets success. The Internet was massive before MS came along. .
