MS feeling a draft under the Linux door?

I know it's easy to love to hate MS, but they do rather encourage it, IMO.    :huh:

On point number 1, their arrogance is quite appalling. And they wonder why people love to hate them.  :huh:

On point #2, while I do love my Mac I'm okay with Linux too and agree with the author. No way should the common PC idiot try it but even worse is the fact that it is Dell that they will have to deal with. Dell computers suck as does their sales and support staff...which is just people hired off of the street without ever having seen a computer before. Dell gives them a sheet of paper to read off of and you get to sit on hold for 20 minutes to an hour for the privilege.  :death:
