Well put. Linux has considerable worldwide presence outside the
US. Hadron supports the trolls with their failed logic, which
goes to show that he is not a serious Linux user and is only here
to denigrate Linux advocacy.
As Linux grows by leaps and bounds, the trolls keep singing their
mantra that it remains at under 1%, that Microsoft is not a
monopoly, that Microsoft makes the best products, that "how dare
you criticise Microsoft's home grown goodness" (DFS), that the EU
is inconsiderate and unfair with their judgments, that the more
than adequate KDE (among others) desktops are inadequate, and ad
They are all in a state of denial.
