Yes, I'm a Linux user. That has nothing to do with my dislike of Windows.
Before I was a Linux user, I hated Windows. How could one like a company that was responsible for autoexec.bat and config.sys. So many hours fiddling with these files just to get games to work. That's why as soon as OS2 came out, I tried that.
Unfortunately, the fact that "everyone else" uses Windows means that one has to have Windows. Even just to maintain some level of "most of the world" compatibility.
