Then how did I attack his character? I said no one takes his articles about Microsoft seriously.

You compared it to Paul Thurrott, which is off. Thurrott is a Microsoft fan and writes mostly positive things about them. Steven is an open-source advocate and writes nothing but negative things about Microsoft. There is a difference.

This just struck me as way off. What's the difference? That they have different opinions about the same subject? Good! If Paul Thurott were the only one talking about Windows, no one would know there was anything wrong with it. Well, except everyone who uses it, but you know what I mean. It looks to me like they're equal opposites. The biggest difference is in which one any given person agrees with.

Paul says constructive stuff sometimes. Steven just bitches.

Not only that, Paul has written positive things about Linux as well.
