What Windows has really lacked

Hear, hear!

“What Windows has really lacked, besides pervasive and effective security controls, of course, is an emotional attachment with users. Unlike rival computing platforms such as Linux and the Mac, there aren’t fanatical groups of Windows enthusiasts roaming the Internet and striking down non-believers with unnecessary religious zeal and bias. In fact, if you think about it, the closest we have to that scenario in the Windows world are guys like me, and I couldn’t care less if you choose not to run Windows. Instead, Windows guys tend to be more pragmatic than Linux and Mac fanatics. First, we’re not fanatics, and while I can’t speak for the rest of the community, I completely understand why someone might want to run Mac OS X, and I’d never ridicule them for making that choice.”

    That is definitely a huge pile of bullshit as slashdot and heise.de show each and every day again. 🙂

    i definitely ridicule anyone who is stupid enough to run on a mac machine that has compatibility issues. Linux is just great for servers and maybe testing new software other than that its a pile of crap.
