 Stop Microsoft

So you don't like Microsoft that much. Who does, really?
What can you do about a company that is installed on 90% of all desktop computers?
(source)
Here are some ideas:

1. Look at our "Alternatives" on the left.
For instance, you can replace Windows by installing Linux Mint. Or by selling your PC, and getting a brand new Mac.

Do you have an Xbox? Sell it, the Xbox 360 scratches discs and the Xbox One will spy on you eventually.

2. Not using so many Microsoft products. If you're keeping Windows, at least use another browser or office suite.

You'll love how other browsers than Internet Explorer aren't annoying and corpulent (like my mother-in-law).

3. When you're influential at your company, look at some business solutions in the "Alternatives" on the left.

4. If you're the daring type, buy some stocks in
Apple, BlackBerry, Google, IBM, Nintendo, Opera, Oracle, Red Hat, Sony or VMware.

5. Visit our forum, and speak your mind. In a civilized manner of course.
