   Windows has its advantages and disadvantages. People forget that
   the world before Windows was worse than now - software was even
   less reliable and even more costly in most instances.

You have a very skewed view of history, software has been quite
reliable since before Windows, if anything Windows started the idea
that software _doesn't_ have to be reliable.

   I'm no MS supporter, but let's be realistic on the good Windows has
   done for the world.

I fail to see what good it has done, Windows tries to control what the
user can or cannot do, just that shows that it has done nothing good
for the world, only made it worse.
