Have Linux Lovers gone to the dark side?

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

I was having a conversation with my alter ego earlier on. No, not the one in a mirror. A real person living on the other side of the world to me. This person is as much a windows person as I am a Linux person.

This person lamented to me that with the release of w8 the Linux crowd have become extremely nasty and trollish in bringing the newest offering of microsoft down. They stated that Linux people never used to be like this and any sympathy he felt for them has now evaporated due to their latest actions.

Personally I had not noticed such abnormal behaviour.

Remind your friend that

Remind your friend that Microsoft is no good soul trying to sell good software, but has rather always lied and FUD his way to the top, not to mention their unethical or outright criminal behavior towards the competition. Their software is buggy and intentionally fragile so they can always sell the "fix" in the next version, their software has backdoors so the US goverment can spy on any computer on the planet using Windows. Etc, etc.

So yeah, it the truth offends, find friends with better common sense.
