When you've started out in your garage, created a multi-billion dollar empire, driven PC development for years and then on top of that created flawless software that couldn't possibly attract criticism... then maybe you'd be in a position to criticise MS and Gates.

1) Unless you've ever tried to develop software using MS products or non MS products on MS operating systems then you simply aren't qualified to comment.
2) You don't have to have done something to be able to criticise it. E.g. I bet you have considered certain films to be crap. Using your argument, you can shut the hell up until you've MADE a successful film yourself.
