though you got modded down, i think there is some truth to your subject line. Most people that are into open source software are really just fans of certain open source projects, and prefer open source for the rest of their stuff. Every project has it's "us versus the world" users, and the reason you come across a lot of linux zealots like this is largely because of it's large user/developer base. Most people will see this as a win for open source, despite what some vocal fanatics say.

I'm not saying their aren't people that are just purely into open source, and only use open source. It's just that a majority of the open source world is not made up of these people
