I'm heasitant to add the verb meaning - in my work I will occasionally hear "Oh shit, my computer is microsofted again!" (Meaning some software feature was invoked with good intentions that had the opposite affect as was intended.) But perhaps that is too confined a usage and/or too POV? Can anyone find citations of this? --Connel MacKenzie 00:51, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)
It makes total sense to add the verb, even if it's just slang. Run a search with your preferred search engine, e.g. Google http://www.google.com/search?q=microsofted (about 798 results), and you'll have lots of citations. There seem to be other senses to the verb, as in Slashdot's "Well, somebody Microsofted me over the internet."
Another search: Google Groups http://groups-beta.google.com/groups?q=microsofted (288 results).
