    I disagree with most on that list. Office was great and Minecraft wasn't created by Microsoft.

    Also azure and vscode.

    *personal opinion*
    As long as windows 10 exists I'll treat it as mal/spy ware. So nope disagree but hey, opinions be opinions :)

    I'm here to say that MS Office is the best office suite and I won't let anybody tell me anything else!

    I don't use windows, but LibreOffice makes my balls explode in rage sometimes. And don't even think to mention Abiword!

    On the note of good Microsoft games, I used to love Fury 3 as a kid. (Even though it’s their failed attempt at mimicking Descent, it was still a great game, IMO.)

    Why did powershell make that list? I fucking hate it!
    What you should add though, is CSS Grid, which was designed as an initial draft by the Edge team!

    The original Age of Empires was not created by Microsoft, but by Ensemble Studios, a small company that approached Microsoft for distribution. When it was released it was radically unlike any game release Microsoft had done before that time. They didn't really even know how to sell games at the time.

    @Wack the reason i added powershell is because there are no cryptically named commands, the name conventions are well thought out so you can easily find the one you need
