I've just looked up the definition of 'Debate' in my Collins dictionary;
"A debate is an exchange of opposing views by two or more individuals"

I've watched this thread for the last couple of days, I've not seen any 
defence of Microsoft or good old Bill just the usual drumhead court.

Just wondering by what definition this is classed as a debate?

I for one would have been happier if this thread had highlighted printers that 
'worked' under Linux rather than descending, as usual, into the "Its all evil 
Bills fault that my printer wont work under an OS that is only 14 years old 
and is completely different to the system that my printer was made for" 

Try sticking diesel in your unleaded car then complaing to Ford or Rover that 
their car is crap because it wont run on what you want rather that what it 
was built for!

"That should warm things up a bit" :D
