i can't find a bug count for any version of faildows. does anyone know one, or anything? i need examples and stats and numbers for my essay.
-i want a bug count. (eg. 200 000 bugs in windows xp)
-i want an example of a really dumb bug. (i know there was this bug with windows 98 or something that if u left it on 48 hours after u installed it, then it would shut off or something, but can't find the bug anywhere now.)

here it is so far:

________________________________________
Windows
You probably know about Microsoft and Windows, but did you know what they are really like? Microsoft has done some pretty unfair and unethical things to keep ahead of the pack. They use aggressive advertising way too seriously, bribe other companies with their wealth, spread untruths, and overtake other companies by stealing their ideas. sudo

Microsoft has done certain things leading to a monopoly in computer operating systems and software. They pay (or have reductions) to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) so that Windows is pre-installed on computers that they ship. This causes them to pick Windows, and not any other OS (Operating System), such as Linux. Microsoft has a rebate valid if an OEM puts Windows on any computers. This rebate takes a lot off of the licensing cost, but then the OEM is only allowed to put Windows on their computers. This is uncompetitive, and just not giving other businesses or OSes a chance. Since Microsoft is a very wealthy and well-established business, and this benefits them greatly, they have no problem doing this. “Embrace, extend and extinguish” is how Microsoft described their own strategy to overtake other companies. Embrace: try making a new product from something already widely used. Extend: add new propitiatory features to it, which the normal version of the product doesn't have. Finally, extinguish: more people buy the new product, because of the new features, and the original company goes out of business, or is impaired.

Microsoft's advertising is another topic. Advertising your own product is expected of a business, but not including false and misleading information. There was a training program at Best Buy, educating the employees about how much better Windows 7 is than Linux. It said things about Linux that were flat out lies, or at least years out of date. Really bad support for hardware such as mp3 players, webcams, digital camera, and printers? The support isn't as good as windows, because of its monopoly, but it's pretty good, and most things work well. Updates in Linux are confusing and hard? No, there is a really easy update tool for most versions of Linux. Certain Windows applications or games don't work on Linux? Obviously, they were made for Windows, but there are FREE alternatives for almost every Windows program out there, and if that's not enough, there is WINE (an acronym of “WINE Is Not an Emulator”), which can run quite a few Windows programs and games in Linux. That was just some examples of the lies that Microsoft wants electronics stores' employees to spread about competitors. Is this fair, ethical advertising?

Standardization is a big goal (and mostly achieved) of Microsoft. Because of their monopoly over computer software, most people know lots about Windows and its software, such as Word and Excel. Some people know those terms, but not the basic types of files. A word processor is typing things on a computer, such as this essay, and some people would call it a “Word Document”. No, that means it was made in Microsoft Word. There are many alternatives to Microsoft's software. Other cheaper office suites include WordPerfect, AbiWord, and others. I am writing this essay in OpenOffice, and it is saved as an ODT file (ODF Text Document, where ODF is Open Document Format). OpenOffice is a great office suite that has a spreadsheet, a word processor, and a presentation tool. It is free, open source (the inner workings and code are available for inspection and improvement), and can also read Word documents, and other formats. People are taught in school about Microsoft Windows software, but are hardly exposed to anything else to the extent that some people might not even know what a word processor is, but be able to identify with “Word”.

These unlawful practises, along with better free alternatives such as Ubuntu Linux and its free software, and just the many bugs BUG COUNT in Windows are why I don't use Windows, or its software unless I need it to play a certain game or application, which does not work to my satisfaction on another OS. Windows wasn't built for security and durability, either. It was started before the internet, and security has been an afterthought. Unix and Linux (based on Unix) were built with security and internet protection in mind, so obviously the protection surpasses Windows. Windows is known to have hundreds of viruses that can do anything from slow down your computer a bit to log what you type in order to gain access to credit card numbers to take complete control over your computer. There are anti-virus programs, but most of those cost a good deal of money, too. If any of this information attracts you then I advise you to keep on supporting Microsoft, if not, then it's time to end the reign of terror.

Nice reading.
Just a few comments:

Microsoft's big steal/scam was actually borrowing the Mac interface. That's why they call their product "windows" (as in: Mac graphic interface but from another company with no ideas...)

I have already posted the OS related bugs just for a single third party product (about 100+)

MS doesn't fix critical bugs, they mostly force their victims to buy and use another thing (upgrade?) Then the users are pushed to new bugs sometimes without solving the earlier either. MS versions system is confuse/disingenuous to say the least.

People don't know MS products but their names and some ways to get their job done with them (in such case they don't crash in the user face). MS products inner workings and logic are hidden to the user.

Uncompetitive practises are not reserved towards Best Buy employees. Lobbying and direct traffic of influences in governments and public institutions around the world come to my mind. i.e., MS started their (philanthropic) educational plans since people involved in FLOSS was doing it already and opening their own niches.
It was an attack to FLOSS, not philanthropic efforts.

The extensive bug count isn't important at all when talking about MS products as they hide their security flaws. So, who knows/cares?

 MS's philanthropy...

 
 by greygjhart on: Mar 2 2010
 
Score 50%

Yeah I'm reallly concerned too by those projects that MS run with educational systems (e.g. the school where I study) : MSDNAA for exemple (are there any other BTW ?). They pretend to be helping those academic institutions, but what's far worse is that those universities and schools actually believe it's an opportunity for them, as they don't pay the software. As I criticized this matter of fact I've been told "J'ai du mal à concevoir qu'une Grande Ecole d'Ingénieur refuse un tel "cadeau" provenant de la part d'une société comme Microsoft..." which for non-french speakers means : "I can hardly imagin why a prestigious engineer school could refuse such a "present" from a company like Microsoft". So that's really mysterious to me : is the price what matters for them ? then they should all be running free software ! So it must the quality of the soft ? But god it's known to be a whole lotta crappy things that don't work really well. So what's wrong with them ?!

It really feels like for most people now learning informatics means learning how to use MS's products. The administration gave us one week in the begining of the term to pratice 'Word & Excel'. One afternoon making a beautiful 'word document' and another to prepare a 'powerpoint' - did you notice how those became common nouns ? it freaks me out. They want to study, ok, but they don't want to understand. Gee, that's another mystery isn't it ?

So in the end I reckon that we face something quite strange. Their link to MS seems beyond rationality. They don't have a good reason to use that soft - I sincerely imagin that some could have such a reason : if you work for a company and you must develop .Net tools for them, then ok - but they can't imagin to use something different. That's probably the biggest trick that Gate's men achieved : to bind people not only by disloyal marketing and lies, but in their heads. They're prisonners of MS in the deepest of their mind...

there is so many bugs in the WAT for Windows 7, (Windows Activation Tool), it should be considered as a spyware... Eg, they update their customer's PC without noticing

They were taken to court about their practices with WGA/WAT and it acting like spyware.

They claim it's a security thing. Go figure.

I remember very clearly, you couldn't create folders in Windows ME explorer.
You could move, copy or remove them, but not create.

The hackish solution is to copy existing folder, delete its contents and rename.

I only used Windows for games. I also liked the Windows 7 GUI (Aero theme, rather easy on the eyes after living with its Classic theme) until I then discovered Linux Ultimate Edition (Ubuntu with pre-included stuff). Super awesome GUI and enabled me to have an epic awesome display. I use Linux for schoolwork because it supports printer drivers and OpenOffice (funny, WinVista and Win7 don't have those old printer drivers, and Linux seems to support even the older printers that are ancient beyond ancient because they believe in FREEDOM, unlike certain corporations *coughmicrolostcough* who want to control everything you do.) and is generally awesome with it's filesystem support and ability to read and write to other filesystems.

Hallelujah, Linux!

BTW, I know Gmail is nice and safe but it is better if you never put a mail address in plain text like that. You are just inviting SPAM robots and stressing Google servers without any need.

I sent you a message too. And I agree with code933k about displaying email in plain text. What I've seen users do on other sites is put it in a format such as 'foobar at example dot com'. Just a suggestion.

k, guys, i never really realized that there was a 500 word limit. mine is ~800
*facepalm*
my teacher said to cut it down a lot, anything that is not utterly necessary should be removed. she said to have it at 600, then she would take it.
so i did lots of revising, and have it down, but not on the computer, so i'm not sure how long it is.
we'll see.
i wish there was no word limit or paragraph limit. i would have more like 8-10 paragraphs, windows sucks so much.

 O0o portable

my openoffice portable runs so badly at school. i think it's because the computers suck, but not sure. i have a project that i'm working on as odt, and i use the odt at school but it takes a long time to start (even longer than firefox portable), then is just very slow generally. any way to speed it up?
maybe i'll try that other office program...

OpenOffice consists of more individual files to load than Mozilla Firefox. USB Flash drives tend to hate having to load a bunch of single files. Recommendation: Google on optimizing OOo Portable or get an external hard drive.

Or, copy OOo Portable to their school HDD and run it from there.

hmmm... i carefully read the restrictions on computer use, that's why i used the portable on my usb stick, but it says no installing unauthorized programs, but portableapps aren't installing it technically. that could work. i think i'll look for a smaller version, too.

It is extremely slow for me too. And my school has the same rules. I break them. I've installed OpenOffice, Google Chrome, and GIMP on a school computer. This is my junior year in high school and I still haven't lost computer privileges. The district admins really fail.
