I seriously don't get the memery hype behind "Windows Bad, Linux Good". Each can use their preferred operating system as long as it does the job for them. The last thing we needed were some skiddies making this a trend

@ebourgess There are a lot of puritans who believe that commercial = bad, and since Windows is commercial, it is bad.

I imagine most people typing those words are using a Mac, but 🤷‍♂️

This is not my experience. Most of the rabid anti-Microsoft people I have talked to have a philosophical objection to proprietary software, and are neutral on the question of commercial vs. not.

@Creideiki @ebourgess I guess I equated “commercial” and “proprietary”, but I think we’re saying the same thing.

If we actually could use our preferred systems, that would be great. But people who use Windows seem very happy to force everyone else to follow along.

Freedom is about choice. RMS has some good points though
