Wow, this thread generated more vitriol than I anticipated. I was
really just trying to poke some good-natured fun at what I perceived as
a difference between the historically inclusive "Linux community
attitude" (if such a thing can be defined) and the "Windows-world
attitude" (again, a fuzzy thing).
I wasn't trying to be mean or to kick off yet another silly flame war.
Sure, I was trying to make some points about attitude and motivation but
mostly I was trying to be *funny*.

Just to prove that I bear no ill-will towards you or the NT Users Group,
please accept a sincere "Thank you!" for the invite.
