I believe that if the question was "Do you envy Apple?" on the news front page and you were required to be sincere, than we would have equivalent results for the current 'Yes' and 'No', if you know what I mean.

No, I don't.

I like a lot of the stuff they have put out there and even though I cannot stand Windows 8 and I'm worried about some of the decisions made recently I still think they generally speaking an awesome tech company.

edit 1:
Also, why you no include poll via native forum poll feature? Grrr...
(sidenote: very maturely started discussion on that page)

edit 2:
Hmmm... you can't vote on that page... You've given us the results page and there's no way to "go back" (the link won't work, because our browsers haven't been on the previous page)

edit 3:
(lol)
This should work: http://poll.pollcode.com/tnfclv

I don't hate MS -- I look up to them in a hopeful way.

I'd like them to stay ethical and honest.

I am baffled by the programmers and software designers.

I am baffled by the seemingly endless buggy RTM versions.

I am baffled when they put out a backward product like Windows 8.

Microsoft should ask the end users what they [i]want[/i] and like.

MS should make operating systems that are as customizable as possible -- not force changes that many people don't want.

Different isn't always better.

Agree. It is silly to hate companies... But I think it's ok to hate people... Like CEOs. :D

You've not been around much, have you?

I see you only recently joined, but even lurking should have shown you what kind of stuff sometimes floats around here... :/

I don't hate Microsoft, but I don't like Windows 8 and I don't like the poor distribution of Surface outside USA.

This is exactly the reaction retarded articled like the poll on the front page produce. Congrats Neowin for nurturing fanboy mentality, keeping the quality as low as possible, and driving long time community members away. This place has truly turned awful.

I'm not sure what is more pathetic. The poll on the front page or this retaliation poll.

At least a couple of people around here need to grow up.

Why couldn't you just attach a poll to the thread? And no, I don't hate Microsoft but the direction they're taking concerns me at the moment. I don't like product bastardisation and I don't like the fact that they seem more interested in catering to app junkies than the traditional users of their products.

I don't hate MS or Apple, but I do dislike Apple because of their extortionate prices and constant patent / suing trolling

Imnot taking part in the childish poll, however, simply removing _result?v from the URL gave me the voting page

If you hate Microsoft, maybe you should consider another tech site than Neo[b]WIN[/b]. just an idea :)

Also why use an off site poll and not the built in one of the forum. other than to make sure noone votes, except those who are the biggest trolls and will go to any length to show their displeasure.

It would be easier to publish the poll here, I'm not gonna click on a link to an external page for a poll like this, and no, I don't hate MS.

But that wouldn't matter, if they delete his post, noone will ever see and know his poll exists anyway.

When I came to this thread it was pretty new and already had over 10 votes, so I take it that poll originated from some other forum that probably leans towards Microsoft hate or immature punks, as the poll started off with more votes in favor of Microsoft hate.

Meh...

Reporting this thread now, it's just as immaturely worded as the front page news item and just a counterattack against it.
Hence, not very helpful at all.
