X11, Window Managers "Desktop computing technology has evolved considerably since the first graphical user interface was developed by researchers at Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center in 1973. Microsoft's Aero Glass, Apple's Quartz 2D Extreme, and Sun's Project Looking Glass are all poised to transform the way that users interact with computers. Also at the forefront of innovation, the Linux community has some prodigiously impressive new user interface technologies of its own. Beryl, a new open-source window manager for Linux, features compelling visual enhancements like support for transparent windows and elaborate window animations."

Why is it that we have to read this sort of comments about users of other OSs all the time?

Is it really soooo incomprehensible to so many people that not every one uses the same OS and that there might be reasons for using Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, *BSD - you name it - without having to refer to people as zealots, fanboys and the likes that indicate people with no will of their own??

To be honest, it annoys me...

It's like guys who need to constantly assert their machismo; they are simply not secure in their choice.
