Re: [News] Violent Microsoft Goons Attack Linux/Free Software Advocates (Not on the Internet)

After takin' a swig o' grog, Roy Schestowitz belched out

   Given that he

   a) had lost work, as he perceived it, due to lack of Linux skills,

   b) had met someone who was into Linux and taught a class in it, and

   c) tried to beat this person up,

   I suspect that his lack of employment has very little to do with his
   lack of Linux skills.

Was this in 'tlanta?  DFS?
