Thats soo true. In some forums, not so enlightned as TR or say Ars, the OSS trolls are so rampant that within an hour of any article regarding MS, you have a 100 junk post destroying any chance of relevant discussion. Such things almost makes we want to run MS out of spite... A more nuanced debate playing to the strengths they have is much better, without hiding the weaknesses. And the same goes for MS of course...just brew it! wrote:Linus Torvalds weighs in on the issue.
IMO the Open Source community is sometimes its own worst enemy -- mindless MS-bashing and hurling insults at people for being "too stupid" to use Linux is counter-productive, and ultimately drives potential users away.

That, and resigning linux to the x86 architecture.. IDIOT.
I couldn't make sense of that either. Especially since if you're looking at client (ie, non-server) systems, there are probably more ARM chips running Linux than x86.just brew it! wrote:So WTF are you going on about with this "resigned it to x86" BS?
