thanks for pointing this out, 'learned something.

But believe it or not: I (personally) never felt that way, when I saw "M$".
Only when reading "Windoze" or "Windoof" (German) or something similar.
I therefore _never_ used the latter terms, never.
Seems you are right and I should add "M$" to my personal blacklist of terms, not to be used.
