love/hate...

I love Microsoft, I hate Microsoft...

Or rather, I have no feelings for the company specifically or its people...What I'm speaking of here is the amazing utility of so many of its features, the fact that with my PDA and Outlook I can take things right from a few clicks into my calendar, respond to meeting requests, plan meetings, share data...okay, all those things we need to do...

The PDA part of it, with the little pings that say "time to go do (a) or (b) " is key for a person with ADD...

But does all the time I spend debugging crashes, helping other people use the features, etc., compensate for the time and productivity gains I get using it?

Sometimes I wonder...
