Maybe its a troll? Maybe its not. I'm just sick of the constant complaining about microsoft. Yeah, we all know they push themselves around a little too much, and have some monopolistic qualities, but god damn, do we really need to point out every little damn thing?
What really gets me is the complaining from linux zealots that haven't used anything MS for 5 years. They have no new input about the software (and haven't for 4 years). I use Win2K, WinME, and SuSE (7.2) all. I'm happy with all of them, and they all are great for a specific use (WinME is my gaming machine, and I'm a Java Programmer, so the Linux & 2K box is my programming boxes).
The only humorous bit, is that bad publicity still is publicity. Slashdot is making MS even more in the news, and even more popular. Way to do exactly the thing you don't want to
