Is MS responsible for bad hardware?

  This is getting absurd - what your probably have is a mouse with a
  scratchy left button - I can, as I write this, insert the cursor in the middle
  of a word, OR, if I 'double click' on a word, it is 'selected' or highlighted.
  You know, seriously - you guys are (legitimately I think too) griping about
  Microsoft when the REAL CULPRIT is very, very often  CHEAP FLAKEY
  HARDWARE!!!  There is some real crap out there, and of course if you run
  software from ANYBODY on crummy hardware you will have problems.
