Windows If you shout something loud enough and many people are saying it, does it become true? Some groups of people (include tech journalists and Linux advocates, such as Steven J. Vaughn-Nichols) have a psychological need to find Vista lacking. Mr. V-N has predicted that Vista will have all manner of problems, so his clear interest is to point out everything that is wrong with the OS. Who cares if he has to even make some stuff up?

Vista-advocate smacking a non-Vista advocate ? From where does this urge to defend Vista and its engineers ? Like it would matter. Like we would care. It's not the love stories of Vista-believers that will make us use Vista, it's the need (work), it's the curiosity (try/buy), it's the inevitable (preload), it's the demand (kids: pa' I want Vista). Some guys coming singing odes of it won't do much. Not with me, at least.

Other than that what the frack is this

I'm looking at you, Linux advocates
? So what, we should get the point ? Or we should be ashamed and hide ? Perish in anguish ? Change religions ? Throw out our laptops and workstations and servers ? Bash and step on every head that has a Linux partition ?

Yeah, I thought so. Then whadda freaking stupidity makes one insert such a line when he's a Vista man talking about Vista to someone who was also talking about Vista ? Man, get a beer and go write fairytales.
