Some people are really MS, or pro Google etc... do you have any company that you particularly like or is it the lesser of two evils?

If one is considering overall philosopy of the company I'd go with IBM

Who needs IBM?
I'd go with Microsoft, Google, then Intel. But I prefer AMD.

the only one i like is google, i use XP because its the most compatible actually its because its easiest to use

 
I'm out of bed and dressed, what more do you want?

I always take life with a grain of salt, ... a slice of lemon, ...and a shot of tequila

I used to have an open mind but my brains kept falling out

One more step to enlightenment ... but which way ?

IBM rock out of the whole lot.

All of our main servers are IBM's with a few Dell's alongside.

I'm also a big Fan of google, but i try to stay away from Microsoft stuff, thus why we don't use W2K3 on servers unless a client requires it

Is this a trick question ... or am I being dumb today.

There is only one "computing" giant listed.

You list Intel but NOT AMD
You list Microsoft, but not Mac or Linux (had to sneak that one in)
You list Google, but not Yahoo. (insert the rest here)

The only "computing" giant I see is IBM ... and they are as bad as the rest.

Abstention.

AMD

If I had to choose one of that lot it would be IBM as they're responsible for some good things.

They also collaborate with Linux people.

But, as with Mucks - Abstain

OK, perhaps "computing" was a bit misleading - but Hardware/IT/Computing related - all household names

Ok, voted AMD.

I was thinking, the omission of AMD in that list may very well reflect the general public's perception of computing 'giants'.

AMD? Who they?
