Like I said in my edited post Apple and Microsoft are walking a parallel line right now and no one is saying anything to Apple are they?
Thats because M$ is the bigger company. They have the larger market share, and much more scrutiny. If they were the size of Apple, and Apple was M$'s size, it would be them that gets the criticism.

I think you can access the internet from Explorer.

Though when I tried it, it opened FF. I don't know....

In their position they need to be held against the strictest norms possible.

Heck, did you read about how the windowsbased stocktrade system failed and how they are scrambing to dump windows there?
Then based upon that I wouldn't blame Microsoft if they closed their doors tomorrow....How can Microsoft remain competitive if they are held to certain standards if other companies are not? To me it would seem that other companies have the monopoly over Microsoft....They can go on as they please with little to no scrutiny while Microsoft has a magnifying glass pointed to them at all times. The reason we have fair competition is to keep prices fair and to have the quality of products at an acceptable level...not to have a lame duck company forced to put out software to certain company based norms while letting supposed "underdogs" walk on by without any notice. Just what kind of market is that?

True, but it is a very well known slang for Microsoft (Micro$oft).

He was joking(?). And yeah I guess, free speech. But those are insulting terms, whereas M$ is just a different abreviation. I could use AP for Apple or LX for linux. Its just that people don't know them.
