Sounds like much of the whines from Hadron, DFS, Ezekiel,
flatfish (Gary), and ad nauseum. Those who advocate Linux are
simply wicked in their limited minds.

Folks, this isn't a Linux advocacy group, it's a religious cult
of star struck "never have beens" many of which have done nothing
to advocate Linux other than make themselves and sadly the real
Linux advocates by association, foolish.
One point in particular is a good example of how ignorant some of
these people are and that is it's a known fact that the majority,
all in fact, use Windows by day yet they like to denigrate the
Windows users calling them Windummies and other slurs.
So by association, they must be the same and in fact even worse
because they know about an alternative, Linux, yet they still

exist in the Linux community take a close look at Roy's IRC
channel which if one didn't know would suspect it was being run

These people are dangerous both to the industry, Linux and in
some cases to themselves. I won't mention names, you can look for
yourself, but some of them are so bitter, so angry and so
obviously disturbed that they really should seek some medical
attention before they go over the edge, snap and harm themselves.
The hate, the arrogance the craziness and the obsession with
anything proprietary on that channel is sick.
