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 want 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.

wow to save all the whining why not just add Apple & MS to the original poll instead of childish retaliation threads ?
