A company that has biolons (maybye even trillions) of dollors, mnakes several products, most of these products are the most popular (version\model etc. irelevent). Yet most of there 2nd latest products are some of the most critisied or hated products.

What is the Company?
What is there most hated product?

A-ha...you ARE a programmer! I say this to you in love as I've said it before to the uber-smart programmers in my work: You don't understand the Mac because it is too easy.
But all is good! This would be a very boring world if we all liked the same things.


Back to the puzzle: Would you be referring to Vista? Internet Explorer? IE8?

Popular product...another type of software?no Another OS?yes
Popular product: XP?yes Windows 7?no
************SPOILER***********
Microsoft is one of the richest companies in the world. it main product, windows, is the most populer.

However, xp the is stil used today as people say "its bug free".
Windows vista is one of the greatest achievments in computer software, yet it was hated due to compadibility problems, security risks, user acount control, performance and bugs. i got vista wen it came out and it worked perfectly, user acount control was anoying, but i turned it off. I have had no problems with it and its much beter then xp.

But now theres a new os: windows 7, much beter then both vista and xp, this is the os i use now.

P.S. Sorry for the delay

Ironically, I think my laptop has had more problems with Vista than my old computer did with XP. But then again, that old compy had its annoying problems too (slow as anything).

Good puzzle!
