Well, if this spawns a microsoft bashing thread on this list, it
wouldn't be the first time, and it probably won't be the last.

Besides, although we don't come right out and say it, I personally am
of the opinion that most, if not all gnu/linux users in the world, and
on this list, are
anti-microsoft. After all, having been a user of windblows, and
gnu/linux for a few years now, I can't honestly say that I think
people are switching from windblows to gnu/linux, because gnu/linux is
easier to use than windows is. For anybody else who has used both
operating systems for a good while, and is tempted to disagree with
that, think back on your first time compiling a customized linux
kernel, or on the steps one has to go through to build a piece of
software from source , or better yet, on how involved building a
gentoo, or a linux-from-scratch system is.
