Re: word is getting out
It's the fashion of smug pricks who comment on the Register. You can always tell them by their own particular reality distortion fields.
Those who claim Apple's market capitalization makes them somehow more relevant to the world than any other tech company.
Those who think Google can do no wrong.
Those who are convinced that the PC is dead despite overwhelming evidence (and they're usually posting from a fucking PC).
Those who use terms like "M$" or "Microsloth" or "Slurp" and talk about fading relevance in a world where phones haven't taken over, Windows still sells for actual money, people buy PCs every day and Microsoft make more money than you could ever even dream of.
I use debian at home, it's fine for me but it's not fine for everyone. I don't dislike Windows, I use it at work. It's okay. I have an Android phone. I love the phone but the OS is frankly insecure dogshit, more like Windows ME than anything one would regard as acceptable today.
Nobody is going to take your OS of choice away. Use it, enjoy it. But don't pretend you're personally "winning" anything. First, nobody gives a fuck about you. Second, the numbers are there for those who aren't blind and those numbers say you're at best wishful thinking and at worst pissing in the wind. So lay off the pointless propaganda. All it does is make linux loyalists (like me) embarrassed by you.
