    To me this calls to mind that saying about the perfect being the enemy of the good. :)

    Windows => painfully on point about the updates. Otherwise... whatever.

    Linux => the stuff about the Linux community is dead on, unfortunately (though BSD is even worse in my experience). Linux desktop stuff suits me fine, but then I'm used to it. I'm disappointed he doesn't lay into Linux on the server though, because that has its own laundry list of special problems.

    OSX => not enough experience with it to comment, other than to say that it's much slower than Linux even on powerful hardware.

    I didn't find it all that funny, but that's probably because I wrote a lot of similar rants back when I was in college.

    Unfortunately, it is very difficult to cater to everyone and doing so will only result in something mediocre overall (as the post states). Might as well patent something that can easily enable us to code our own OS from scratch!

    OK, it was fun to read and all, but what is the point of this article really ? Did somebody really expect man-made operating systems with no problems at all to exist?

    As many years as M$ has been around, you would think by now it would be close.
