It's not a matter of hating Microsoft and shilling for one company or the other. As for Woz, he was commenting about the design of the Microsoft Surface - we're talking Windows 8 here. Also, my impression of Woz is that he makes every attempt to avoid being perceived as an Apple shill, and so has a tendency to tout the competition (Android, Microsoft, etc.) while being unevenly critical of Apple. That's fine but I'm certainly not taking his opinions as objective.
