It feels like 20 years ago all over again (during the Microsoft antitrust hearings). The recent news is that Redmond is the most despised software company. This is according to research from Amplicate, a company that tracks what people say online. I was skeptical and had never heard of Amplicated so I Googled the company and it seems legit. Then to be fair I used Bing and got similar results.
Amplicate gives Microsoft a "70 percent hate score," meaning that the large majority of people that have posted on its Web site have bad things to say about the cost and stability of Redmond tools.
I have an explanation: First, Microsoft is not perfect. I fight its software all too often. Microsoft is both a target for hackers (because it is so ubiquitous) and a punching bag for millions of customers that depend on Windows, Office, et al.
By the way, Oracle claimed a 78 percent level of hate. Ouch.
