Bill Gates and Microsoft... A lot of people hate it and saying Bill Gate is gay and so on. But why ?
Well what he did is he invented something, started a company and made Windows. Yes he does earn A LOT of money on it, yes it is the most used
operating system at all, yes he DOES implement some programs like MSN Messenger that can't be removed (easy) that some thinks forces them to use
But again, they made Windows so userfriendly, almost everyone can figure out the basics. Push on the start button go in the menu programs where all
your programs is and start a program.
And a lot will be able to install etc. Windows XP on an empty harddisk, if they only read what is written on the screen and if they dare to try. I
know my father doesn't dare to try, but if i formatted his harddisk and he read what was written he could do it.
There is other alternatives, Linux and Unix and so on. Many of them is free, and open source (So that other users can improve them) That means that if
a user finds a securitybug it would be faster to fix it, because everyone that knows about it has a chance to fix it. Where if we take Windows only
Microsoft has the sourcecode and only them can make changes.
MANY of the security holes in Windows has been fixed (Although there is a lot left
) and users would just have to update windows to secure themself.
(Windows update makes it all for you) And many of the victims for virus attacks are people who hasn't updated their software wether its anti-virus,
firewall og windows. Or else they just fall for the trick "Open this file and your windows will never be able to crash" and they do... And its a
You don't have to chose Windows, there is other operating systems. Windows is just expensive... You can get support on Windows, but not at all OSs
You don't HAVE to chose msn Messenger but you can use it, you can install other software instead.
I read today that china changed their operating systems in the goverment to linux, so there IS other operating systems.
So what excactly is the problem ?
Heh just my opinion, what do you mean ??
