Exactly what is dishonest about what I wrote?

Where did I say it was any worse?

Where did I say they didn't?
In fact where did I mention Windows at all.
I'm speaking in general about unlawful copying, usage and so

Why is that?
It's hypocritical and in light of seeing posts in this group and
others talking about the large amount of Linux jobs available and
how the pay is higher I would think finding a job that uses Linux
and oss wouldn't be a problem.
See the deep rooted hate for Microsoft I would think that having
to use Windows each day would drive some people crazy. 
The difference between a person who likes to use Linux at might
but needs Windows to do his job by day and a Linux advocate who
trashes others for doing what he does as well is huge.
See my priest analogy in another reply.
