What really gets me (in the case of both the Greens and a certain very 
vocal person at WLUG) is people who rant and rave about how great Linux 
is and how evil Micro$oft (sic) are, but still consistently use Windows 
and Microsoft where perfectly good Free tools exist.

Fair enough if you have to use Microsoft tools because of work 
requirements. Fair enough if you're not a foaming-at-the-mouth 
anti-microsoft zealot. It's the hypocracy that bothers me.

On June 1, 2001, Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, told the Chicago Sun-Times: "Linux is cancer."
Unsurprisingly that's incorrect; LINUX was released on August 25th 1991 and is therefore a Virgo.
