Over the years I have learned to take anything a Linux advocate says with a very small grain of salt. IOW if Linux was good everyone would be using it and they are not. Considering Linux is free, that is a pretty powerful statement.

Is there any other kind of Linux user? Either you are a member of the cult, or you are an outsider. It's pretty obvious.
It should be considering it is still running kde 2.x. Maybe they like living in the past? Their packages really seem way out of date unless you select the unstable tree, which is a real laugh since Linux itself is pretty unstable.
Yea, gentoo is for the real weird ones.

Ubuntu looks like poo. Someone needs to get a new set of eyeballs because I can barely look at that desktop because the fonts are terrible. There might be a way to fix it, but it needs to be fixed.
Yet another package manager, which proves the point that Linux is a confused mess. Tell me, does yum work with Suse? Does Yast work with Fedora? Does emerge work with Slackware? How about Ubuntu?
They are all disasters. Free software that can't be given away. Tell me, why is Linux's desktop market share so dismal?
Anything a Linux advocate says gets divided by 100 to reach an accurate answer. Most of you idiots lie, lie and lie some more.
Again, Linux is free. Why isn't is replacing Windows as a desktop operating system? Why do people spend money on a Mac instead of Linux? Surely you can't blame all of this on Bill Gates? Or maybe you can.
It works.................................... Unlike Linux............................... I can hear the choir already................
