Here's a friend of mine complaining about Microsoft - for something that is very clearly Yahoo's fault...

This happens all the time, and I find it frustrating. Certainly there are some areas where Microsoft deserves criticism and scrutiny. But just because some other company comes up with a lame-ass way to run ads on their site doesn't mean Microsoft is bad. It means Yahoo is bad.

Now it turns out that some MSN.com pages have ads I consider to be even more annoying - floating, animated jobs that really get in the way. THAT is a good reason to criticize Microsoft, because that is their fault...

It is kind of like when people download a new video card driver and their system destabilizes. Microsoft's fault? So they say. But really it is the driver manufacturer's fault. They created the crappy software that crashed your machine.

(Yes, I know, Microsoft should have protected us. Just want I want: Microsoft as my mother, protecting me from all evils. Now THAT is a scary thought...)

All I'm saying is that criticism should be directed at the correct target. If it is Microsoft great, otherwise direct it where it belongs...
