X11, Window Managers Apparently, my article a few days ago caused a bigger stir than I had anticipated, not at all unrelated to the fact that my wordings may not have been optimal. So, let me clarify things a bit.

But that is _no reason_ to denounce an entire community.

Yes, since the people who feel spoken to are the people who I was referring to.

He even used the phrase "anti-MS fanboys" in his article. Do you think that is appropriate?

Yes, because it is a simple fact that it is very, very common among Linux users, much more so than among Windows or Mac users.

He still hasn't apologized for this part of his article.

Maybe it's just me, but I did not find anything in either article that would justify an apology. Help me out here, if you will.

I guess the point i'm trying to make is that there is room on _both_ sides to reduce emotionalism and irrationality.

Absolutely right, until I read...

I don't think there was a disproportionate donation of either from the people who spoke out against Thom's article

Well, I think there was, and is, which is the reason I posted in the first place.
