If Bill gave everyone who bought all the other garbage OS's his company
has sold them previously a free copy of XP (and maybe compensated
everyone for the wasted hours and days and months of hardship as a
result of those bug-infected vermin he called software) I'd be much
kinder to him.

Oh so it's not just Nikon then?

 Mr. Gates made his fortune by plaguing the world with
poorly written software which helped set the industry back years, if not
decades, using the power and wealth he accumulated, to force smaller and
better made products off the market

Such as?

In nearly any other industry I can think of, his practices would have
either put him out of business, or at least landed him in jail.

Name one?

In some ways, Windows (of whatever vintage) still hasn't surpassed the
OS written for the Amiga, over 10 years ago.

Now that really does date you.

Unfortunately, due in part to his illegal business methods, we're stuck
with whatever schlock his company spews out.

No, surely theres Linuk for you nerds and then i do believe that HP and some
other low grade consortium have an alternative that noone can aggre on.

Scanning reference: has he yet incorporated a decent color management
system into his OS?

That's not part of a general operating system. That's you actual 3rd party
producers who you seem to think have been forced out of business
