there is a difference between takings windows side
and not letting yourself become deluded. It does more
good to know exactly how much better or worse linux
is so we know where we stand, than it does to blindly
assume we must be superior because
we follow the one true path/are hand picked by god/have a cuter mascot.
Realistic benchmarking does us more good than microsoft even when
we the benchmarks run against us. we will learn and improve,
microsoft will lie and duck and cover, guess who will come out
on top in the long run....

Yes, it's quite obvious, that we must produce FUD to cripple Windows
before it takes over the world.
Stop taking Windows side, it's the enemy people!
