A lot of Linux hating Redmond fans
Indeed, to characterize anyone at all as 'Linux hating' or 'Microsoft lover' is a fairly unhelpful mindset, in my view.

This idiot interrupted me just when I was about to start screaming and told me there were no bugs in Microsoft products, that it was all operator error. He was dead serious about this as he always had been about all Microsoft products. He would have invited Bill Gates to be his best man if he were getting married. And no, it was not a joke. He never once showed the slightest sense of humor about anything, ever. I disinvited him from my cubicle and went back to my task and eventually got it working again.
Yes, those people do indeed exist.

Of course, the easiest come-back is, "If Windows has no bugs, why does it need Patch Tuesdays?"

Apart from the MICROSOFT bugs (of which it contains too many :-(, it works PERFECTly.

Dude, this is humanity. People will form tribes-for-tribes-sake around *anything*.
