Isn't it time to let this go? Fair or not, 'Linux' has won even if only because it's a more marketable name. Isn't encouraging community infighting over this distracting from many far more important free software issues?
As you've already made your fortune, I'm curious as to why you choose to get involved in controversial patent licensing, rather than, say, Bill Gates style philanthropic work ?
Is this the type of crap we can come to expect now that CmdrTaco is gone?
No. If it makes me feel superior to IE users, the story must run.
How appropriate. You post like a cow.
Your definition of "troll" is astoundingly wrong.
People who suffer from Aspergers or Autism (like many Slashdot users) are unable to read those cues in real life, much less on the internet. They are victims of a disease, but your definition lumps them in with people who try to raise the hackles of others on purpose.
If someone does not understand the nuance of your post, it does not mean they are a troll. The inability to read such nuance over the internet is very much akin to Aspergers and Autism. The person on the other end is working at a disadvantage.

The Osborne 1 was an amazing machine, but the Osborne 2 was going to be even more amazing. Since it never got a chance to be released, comparing a second generation iPad to the Oz1 seems a bit unfair.
What about apples and oranges? These have never been fairly compared.
That's a feature.
No one is coming out with a browser that takes its time. Until now. FF4 takes the concept of performance and turns it on its head.
Aren't you tired of websites that instantly display? Don't you like reading your favorite site leisurely? What if you could have that plus random crashes and uncontrollable memory leaks?
What would you pay for something like that? Would you pay $100 for software of that quality? What if I told you that you could have all this and more for the low, low price of $59.95?
That's right! A slow browser, massive memory leaks, and random crashes in your computer today for only $59.95!
If you act now, I'll throw in a set of plug-ins that will turn your modern day CPU into the legacy system of yesteryear!
Firefox 4! Bring computing back to the speed of life.
