To hell with windows. I'm more annoyed with the general smearing of everything
but linux as 'legacy'. I'm including other UNIXen and UNIX-a-likes here, which
perhaps this person or yourself wasn't including. Perhaps this is not the
correct list to mention that linux is not the all-encompassing world-beating
under-pants-washing-if-you-want-it marvel people like this guy, and Rick make
it out to be. It's especially short-sighted and almost immature to put down
other OSes, especially if you're putting yourself forward as some sort of
evangelist. Linux is good for somethings. Other OSes are better at other
things. Fighting FUD with FUD is incredibly dumb.
