+Dan Lyons just spent the last 30 days using nothing but Microsoft products for an experiment he's dubbed the #MonthOfMicrosoft . He survived. Do you think you could do it??


Here are the first two paragraphs:

_Could Microsoft ever be cool again? The company has been out of it for so long that a comeback is hard to imagine. But by some miracle this seems to be happening, and people are starting to take notice. “Suddenly Microsoft is the Hippest Tech Company Around,” says the Atlantic Wire in an article that claims recent stumbles by Apple (China labor woes) and Google (privacy concerns) make Microsoft seem like nice guys by comparison.

In an experiment I called “Month of Microsoft,” I’ve spent the past four weeks using nothing but Microsoft products—Windows computers, Windows phones, Xbox, Bing, Internet Explorer—instead of my usual lineup of Apple and Google products. It’s been six years since I used any Microsoft products on a regular basis. I wasn’t sure what to expect._

I use MS products because they're not cool! ☺
 
COME BACK?! They never left. Ever heard of Xbox?
 
I quit using MS products when I realized that I didn't need them.
 
Microsoft was EVER cool? But they will stay here long time, since it is quite impossible to buy computer without it.
