I know, I know. *smile* I am probably too sensitive to such things. When I
see someone who is willing to go through the learning curve of a Linux
migration, I believe that (s)he needs to be taken for a walk hand-in-hand.
Anything that will resemble an elitism attitude will quickly raise the
notions from stereotypes and drive the newbie away.
Maybe I'm aware of such things because of some stuff I have seen in the past.
The reluctant newbie will be easily turned off, given the deterrent. I'm
quite heavily involved in C.O.L.A and I see idiots like kohlmann and Fuchs
do this all the time.
