What do you mean, "As for wheel mice, alsa and all that other consumer crap, who cares? If that's what you want, try XP?"
How does that help anyone? Without the consumer, Linux goes the way of BeOS and OS/2: great ideas that died.
Let me tell you that MILLIONS of people care about that "crap," that's who cares. I shouldn't have to use Windows to get good sound and a wheel mouse that works on install.
If you haven't noticed, this isn't about Windows vs. Linux, and none of my article would lead you to believe that it is. Zealotry does nothing to further Linux. It's just not about "use XP" or "go back to Windows." You seem to have missed the points about improving the Linux experience; Windows is a non-issue here.
