SFGate columnist, Mark Morford relays a number of personal horror stories over Microsoft Windows' never-ending array of bugs and vulnerabilities and ponders why consumers put up with this when there are better alternatives.

New car barely starts again and then only goes about 6 miles per hour and it belches smoke and every warning light on the dashboard is blinking on and off and the tires are screaming and the heater is blasting your feet and something smells like burned hair.
