Windows Heck, Microsoft really weren't kidding when they said Windows 7 was the fastest-selling operating system in the world. NetApplications released its figures for January 2010, and it seems that after only three months of availability, Microsoft's latest baby has already hit the 10% market share mark.

Lol! Well said! I'd vote you up but comment voting is already finished on this story.

Rocckwell is the worst kind of troll and he doesn't have the intelligence to realize it. He loves spouting out assumptions as facts and then resorts to name calling when you put him in his place. Funny thing is, he's done a bit of load sharing configuration for a few Linux webservers and now he thinks he knows more about IT than anybody else. If he ever had to work with the kind of systems I do, he'd be completely out of his depth yet he seems to think that his measly little configuration antics means he has more infrastructure knowledge than a UNIX systems engineer and architect like myself. Truly pathetic.

I've come to the conclusion that he has an abnormally low IQ and all his blustering is a shallow and transparent attempt at hiding it. He really should do himself a favour, realize his weaknesses and stop talking, that way he won't end up looking like such a fool but just like his IQ, his wisdom is also lacking. Someday we might be able to get it through his thick skull that we can see right trough him but I wouldn't hold my breath.


Cheers. The more I personally learn about the world the more I realise I've needed to listen to others. Not always because I was wrong (which I was often enough) but also because if you don't listen you won't understand where their misunderstanding my lie. Was just trying to point that out to him as it'll help him in life to go easier on the vitriol. He may well be right about some things but being excessively insulting never helps as people don't want to hear what he has to say when he can't couch it in a reasonable manner. It is a shame some people are like this. Anyway, thanks for explaining the past to me.

No worries. I agree with you whole heartedly when you say listening is a very important part of life and yes, it's a shame some people don't understand that but then again, people like rockwell are really good for entertainment purposes. His ignorance and vitriol make him such an tempting target for ridicule, it's hard not to take advantage of it. Watching him trip himself up is the ultimate in schadenfreude and although I'm obviously being cruel, I just can't help myself feeding him more rope.
