Linux I have so much to thank Bill Gates for: introducing me to the baffling joys of consumer computing with Windows 95; teaching me the meaning of fear and dread with Windows 98; leading me to the sunlit uplands of Windows XP; getting me out of Microsoft altogether with the arrival of Vista. I hardly know where to start. And if I hadn't flown into a high-minded anti-Microsoft, down-with-Bill-Gates fury at the start of this year, would I ever have stumbled upon ZenWalk? I doubt it.

And you missed my point. Blatantly bashing Microsoft had no purpose. Like I said, he could have started with saying "ZenWalk is a linux distro that does this for me and this is why I am using it". Then I was criticized for sharing my own experiences. I never said it was unstable, I said an update caused a working machine to fail.

This isn't even a review. He doesn't owe us anything. Why should he explain his issues with MS?

Frankly, if he doesn't want to tell us, it's not really our business is it?

Point is, he dislikes Microsoft (if he left that part out somebody would be whining that he was far too biased and wasn't upfront about his feelings). He had issues. He heard Linux was a proposed solution. Had bad Suse experience.

Tried Zen, really loves it. Gave us, from a normal user perspective, excellent reasons as to why.

...Some people are never happy.
