Granted, Microsoft has done a few things in a rather underhanded
manner, but the reason you're stuck using Microsoft products is that
most people are satisfied with 'good enough' products, rather than
demanding (and paying for) excellence.
If poor products are maintaining market dominance in an open society
like ours it's the fault of poor decisions made by consumers.
