Why is it considered hep or fashionable to beat down on Microsoft everytime anything goes wrong. Microsoft has changed this world for the better. Its a very large organization and sometimes error do happen because people working at Microsoft are also humans. In the IT professional's community, why is it considered fashionable to beat down on Microsoft? I have seen folks at workplace not leaving a chance to make fun of Microsoft and their products, but the same guys are carving for any MS certifications... big hipocracy. I see this trend more prevenlent in folks from Accenture or supposedly other elitist companies... these are bigger jerks than others, the so called elites on the planet.

What would any one do if he/she only owe 500USD and end up writing the check for 5000USD? I expect the over payment to be refunded. MS should have been careful but their payroll screwed up. No big deal. The reporter tried to make MS look like the worst employer. I dont see a reason why MS should be find fault with in this case.

Reporter should be ashamed of himself for this report. This is a typical payroll accounting error which happens everywhere.

You took the words out of my mouth. It has become a fashion to beat Microsoft on just about everything. In my opinion Microsoft has changed world for the better. It might not make the best software but it is the most easily understood software for ordinary users which is what technology should be all about. No wonder it is the most popular company in the world.
