In some ways MS is more annnoying than Linux can ever be. For example when i
install any version of Windows on my Desktop Computer (except win7) i have
no network drivers installed. Ok for this computer i have a disc where the
driver is on it. I own an old one without driver disc's and find out how the
network card is called even you have no working network, this task can be
annoying on windows. On linux it is not soo difficult (a little research on
the internet on another machine works, every program needed to figure out
the network card is included normally, on windows you have to install
special software only needed for one single task)
