I like microsoft because it circulates the money in the economy through us (software developers). Open source is great but it amounts to free labor creating an environment where software developers will not be left with paying jobs. Look at what Linux did to Sun micro. All big banks etc. use Linux based systems for critical applications and pay peanuts for support. Alternatively, they could have been paying a lot more and all that money could be circulating through software developers. Ever heard of an "open source" mutual fund??? Think about it!
