That's exactly what is happening.

Back a few years ago when a person would venture into a Linux group and ask
for help with a problem, or spew out their frustration with Linux, the
Linux loons would deny that the problem existed.

These days with more people trying Linux, the problems are coming out and
the Linux loons can no longer deny that these problems exist, although they
still try.

The evidence is overwhelming.
