Or Linux, because Linus has such immense respect for computer professionals.

That depends on the "professionals". A lot of the problems with Windows and Apple systems stem mainly from certain "professionals" who, at bottom, are arseholes. Being open source "professionals" however does not preclude a "professional" from being an arsehole either and Linus has a low tolerance for that sort of thing.

That's the difference, you see. In the Microsoft and Apple worlds, the execs and the marketing folk cover their arseholes. LT kicks them instead.

Of course, when it comes to the slimier side of Linux, like RedHat for example with their wholesale obsession with being the next Microsoft, that kick sometimes turns into a squelchy splatting sound. Sad, really. Thankfully Linux is not RedHat!
