I used to think that Microsoft advocates among this group were people who
attempted to migrate (read: upgrade) to Linux, but were unsuccessful. Having
miserably failed and stayed shackled to Windows, I thought it was their
crusade to taunt this group and give themself satisfacation and
self-reassurance, simply claiming that Linux does not work.
It is ever more worrying when people come to this group and post more than
anybody else just to serve their own personal agenda, possibly making ends
meet. Several times in the past I asked DFS (as well as less argumentative
trolls) what the hell they thought when they had subscribed to a Linux
newsgroup in the first place. I know the answer, but I never got to hear it
from the Wintrolls. They are tough nuts, these ones...
