Looks like some people have too much spare time on their hands.  
I mean, does somebody actually download distro's and software just to
prove " it doesn't work".
Is this persons name Gates or Balmer perhaps?

Well, I've not read this one yet but I thought I'd put a reply in to
Dick's post.  I know that there are some very evangelical Windows users
out there.  The same, of course can be said for pretty much any OS you
care to name including Linux.  Those evangelists tend to have very
strong blinkers on them so when somebody gives honest criticism of their
favoured OS they go into hyper apoplexy; if there is such a thing.  If
we are rational about it though the criticism is a good thing because,
as long as we allow it to, it clears away the beginnings of any blinkers
and allows us to see the problems that we don't really want to be there;
even though they stare us in the face.

I think it fair to say that the majority of Linux users don't want their
chosen favourite (they could well use other OS's like I do) OS to be
flawed.  The same can be said of all the other OS users.  So yes,
whoever this Linuxhater is they could be well be a good thing.
If only to focus attention on the flaws in Linux.  Remember, nothing is
ever perfect.
