Was that truly necessary? That attitude, rather than criticising individual
aspects and remain technical, takes the immature point-of-view. It feeds
the Wintroll with that Linux arrogance perpetration.

I do, however, agree with that point you make about problems at the core.
People are often fascinates by that supposedly perfect Office Suite.
Needless to say, those very same applications many rely on sit on top of a
plagued, unstable, misunderstood operating system, which only appears to
become more of a mess as time goes on. Look at the number of security hacks
and viruses 5 years ago for assessment. We (not COLA members) seem to be
returning to the day of DOS and Pong.
