Does this mean the true purpose of the trolls in COLA is to somehow get
us all to write Windows software?
But that wouldn't make much sense, because according to them, we write
"Slopware", and surely they wouldn't want that.

Well, as it turns out, GNU/Linux programmers wrote a particularly useful
piece of Windows software in C, although the trolls may be disappointed
to note that it's licensed GPLv3:
