You don't get it do you ?
Sites like these and others have 'shills' who do nothing more than spread 'FUD'
FUD means Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. Most people around here do not fall for FUD from these shills.
The other person was not spreading FUD, there are two parts to his/her argument, read the post again please.
Now: About the REAL shills...
There might be one or two less experienced people who have heard rumours of this system called Linux that their friends have tried and had no problem with, and these people come onto this site to find out more information. So, the shills, like the one you replied to, spout off a load of lies and try to put people off trying Linux. If one person decides to stick with Windows, then their job is done.
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that anyone who has a problem with Linux and puts up a story is a shill, but, if you actually read some posts, you wonder if there really are people who are so unfortunate that ALL reported problems over ALL distros affect this ONE person.

That's one of the worst posts I've read in some time.
If someone doesn't think that Linux is so great for most people, they're a shill?
And I suppose then that those who are trying to get people to use it are pure?
Give us a break!
Not everyone who doesn't like Linux is using Windows either.
