He has recently grown jealous of Linux.

More latterly he installed the whole Compix/XGL shebang on his wife/fiancee's
laptop and was stunned to realise that it wasn't a resource hog either. I
can't recall how he expressed his feelings, but it was quite the hilarity to
Linux loyalist. Somewhat akin to a scene where someone frantically bangs on
a door and kicks it and then another person calms over calmly and opens it
using the knob. Windows users are used to throwing a lot of brute force at
the problem. Energy is dispensable in a culture of waste and lavish
existence. Needless to mention, there are very few people to whom this
actually translated into profits as opposed to excruciating expenditure.
