Windows ITWire: "Linux users can, at times, be the worst kind of ingrates, whining and complaining about what they perceive as missing features in a free operating system. My advice to all such whingers: spend 10 days using the latest version of Windows and you'll realise that you are living in a world of relative bliss."

For the most part i agree that people here are pretty hard on MS in compairison to other platforms, but there is one substancial difference between Windows and Linux (but not between Windows and Mac), Linux is developed, for the most part, for free. As in; developers spending their time working on an operating system that they want, instead of spending time with their families or gaming or making money to pay the morgage. So, since Windows is entirely developed as a commerical product by a comercial company that you pay to use it's software, i do beleive that there is a good reason to be a bit harsher when Microsoft takes five years to update it's OS and people are wondering if that update is really worth the 500 pricetag.
