Difference? Rabid Mob?

"When Windows issues an update for something, the rabid mob screams about MS selling defective products? What's the difference?"

I'm disappointed to see this topic become a trigger for more flame wars.


For me, the difference is quite simple:

- [Linux] Used mostly by people who CHOOSE to use it

- [Windows] Used mostly by people who get it whether they like it or not


Reading through the comments, it would seem that some proponents of Windows and some proponents of Linux can be equally rabid. I guess there are probably rabid proponents of Apple products too. But its a real shame that members of various "rabid mobs" turn up here. Civilized conversion is much to be preferred.
