I'm starting to think that Windows is just a cruel revenge on all the people that teased this nerd during high school.

Think about it #2. Where would the world be w/out Microsoft?
Under the rule of Apple's tyranny.

#2 MS DOS was THE most important thing that happened to personal computers in their emergence :)

MS-DOS was just a renamed 86-QDOS (Quick and Dirty Operating System), which MS licensed (and later purchased) to fulfill their contract with IBM for a 16-bit personal computer OS. It was a rough clone of CP/M (Control Program for Micros). Far from being the most important software, it was basically the minimum required to put 16-bit personal computers on the market.

Without Microsoft, the early years would likely be dominated by a 16-bit version of CP/M instead, and some other Xerox-inspired GUI for PC's instead of Windows. For a while in the mid-90's, I hoped OS/2 would remain a viable alternative, but the anti-competitive bundling practices of Microsoft ultimately consigned it to obscurity.

With MacOS always being tied to expensive Apple-only hardware (aside from a couple years in the mid-90's when they licensed clones), it was never going to dominate a market that wanted more open hardware.

The short answer to #4's question is that without Microsoft, we'd probably be better off. Windows has improved a lot over the years, but it's still lacking in a lot of fundamental areas.

#%, it was DOS the one that was important, not MS-DOS specifically.
